FSC Certification allows entry into markets limited to FSC Certified suppliers.
Often customers and suppliers are required to complete their "Chain of Custody" documentation in order for them to maintain their own certification. Sometimes its providing FSC documentation going back to the source in the forest. Large suppliers are often required to show the documentation chain through to the retail dealer. Your company's ability to meet their needs is important to them and therefore is important to your business.
