Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®): The FSC's ten Principles and Criteria for forest management set the threshold for defining good forest management around the world. Regional standards must also be developed to reflect local ecological, social and economic factors while adhering to FSC® Principles and Criteria. For this reason, FSC® supports the development of regional standards for use in certification assessments in that region.

Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) is a voluntary forestry standard developed and advanced by the Sustainable Forestry Board. Professional foresters, conservationists and scientists developed this comprehensive system of principles, objectives, performance measures and indicators that combines tree growing and harvesting with long-term protection of wildlife, plants, soil and water quality.

Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) provides a framework for the development of mutual recognition for national or sub-national forest certification schemes that have been developed locally according to internationally recognized requirements for sustainable forest managements.

Chain of Custody and Labeling: SAI Global conducts Chain of Custody audits to SFI, PEFC, FSC® and Certfor standards.
