ASI Suspends SCS Global Services for FSC Certification Activities in PR China

Effective 24 September 2013, Accreditation Services International (ASI) suspended Certification Body SCS Global Services (SCS) from issuing FSC Forest Management and Chain of Custody certification in the People's Republic of China. As of this date, SCS is not permitted to sign new certification contracts, perform initial certification assessments or issue new FSC FM or CoC (CW) certificates in China until ASI has lifted the suspension.

This suspension is due to SCS's failure to provide evidence of approval by the CNCA or evidence of an agreement with a CNCA approved partner in China.

SCS has issued 4 valid FSC Forest Management and 75 valid Chain of Custody certificates in China. The suspension will not affect these current certificates provided that SCS addresses the above issue within six months.

For questions, please contact ASI at info at accreditation-services point com.
