SGS’s quality assessments, inspection and analytical services for forest products ensure high quality at every stage of production and supply.

We provide forest product inspections, audits, certifications and marine services, as well as forest supply sustainability assessments, covering forest conditions, logs, round wood, timber, sawn wood, wood chips and wood pellets. As the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company, we offer you unrivaled experience as well as a unique global network. You can benefit from our advice no matter where you – or your supply chain partners – are located.

For example, our expertise in analytical services means we can offer size, specie identification, humidity tests, quality assessments, physical measurements, energy values, elements, emission and chemical treatment detection and more. Our fumigation and inspection services cover the storage and transportation of timber and wood-based products as they travel through the value chain – from processing to the manufacturers of pulp, paper, panels, furniture, heat and electricity. We certify forests against the requirements of the FSC™ Forest Management standard providing an assurance to customers, stakeholders and investors of the quality of forest management.
