In order to protect healthy forests, it is important to cut down trees appropriately. Forest certification system, based on global standards, aims to protect the health of forests by certificating and labeling appropriately managed forests and chain of custody of the timber logged from the forests concerned.

Types of forest certification systems
FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council)
FSC® is a global, not-for-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of responsible forest management worldwide
FM Certification Forest Management (FM) Certification evaluates and certifies if forest management is appropriate in terms of environmental conservation, socially beneficial, and economically sustainability.
CoC certification Chain of Custody (CoC) Certification certificates timber logged from certificated forests that are appropriately managed, being completely separated from and not mixed with other non-certified timber products during the process of processing and distribution. Basically, when the ownership of certified timber is transferred to another company, the new owner has to obtain the certification again, the process of which applies to every step of producing, processing and distribution, continuing like a chain, and thus named Chain of Custody. ※TANAX has obtained CoC Certification.
