The FSC standard for Multi-site Chain of Custody certification FSC-STD-40-003 was developed for larger companies operating at multiple locations and was published in 2007.
Both, group and multi-site CoC certification, allows Certification Bodies to evaluate participating operations or sites based on samples in recognition of existing common, centrally administered and monitored control and reporting systems.
In September 2011, FSC established a Working Group to guide the review and revision process that aims to create a multiple-site standard covering both group and multi-site organizations.
The first revised draft of the merged group and multi-site standard was publicly consulted between mid February and mid April, 2012. The second public consultation round was closed on April 2, 2013.
