Why you should get training

With more than 20,000 companies covered by PEFC Chain of Custody certification worldwide, the PEFC Chain of Custody standard is widely applied by certified companies, certification bodies and auditors on a daily basis.

To ensure that everyone involved in the process is fully up-to-date on changes to the standard and on interpretation and explanation of specific requirements, we provide several options for the training of Chain of Custody auditors.

This enables the consistent application of the Chain of Custody requirements in daily practice, and allows PEFC to exchange experiences with, and receive valuable feedback from auditors on the implementation of the standard.

Need to train several auditors?

If you work for a certification body with a high number of auditors, the PEFC Training Recognition Program might be a more efficient way to receive the PEFC training. See how you can take part in the program.
