Certification

Sawmills and round fencing manufacturers were also asked whether they held a Chain of Custody certificate. 56% of sawmills who participated in the survey and responded to the question in 2011 reported that they held a Chain of Custody certificate (Table 2.29). This proportion varied with size of mill, from 18% of mills producing less than 5 thousand m3 sawnwood to 100% of those producing 25 thousand m3 sawnwood or more. One half (50%) of round fencing manufacturers who responded to the question reported holding a Chain of Custody certificate.
