Sawmills and round fencing manufacturers were also asked whether they held a Chain of Custody certificate.  54% of sawmills who participated in the survey and responded to the question in 2010 reported that they held a Chain of Custody certificate. This proportion varied with size of mill, from 20% of mills producing less than 5 thousand m3 sawnwood to 100% of those producing 25 thousand m3 sawnwood or more.  43% of round fencing manufacturers who responded to the question reported holding a Chain of Custody certificate.
