The object of FSC Controlled Wood Certification for Forest Management Enterprises (FME) is a unit of forest, taken for long-term lease or owned by an enterprise.

  • Harvested wood in high conservational values forests;
  • Harvested wood on plantations or non-forest land;

Besides there number of limitations, for example, FSC Controlled material cannot be labeled with the FSC Trademark. Wood with the claim «FSC Сontrolled Wood» can be sold only to FSC COC and CW certificate holders.
