Danzer North America has received the ISO 17065 certificate for its due diligence program for the procurement of legal timber. HPVA Laboratories®, the testing and certification arm of Reston, Virginia based Hardwood Plywood & Veneer Association (HPVA) issued the certificate in June 2016.
“Our existing groundwork has been the reason that Danzer could pass the new standard so quickly”, says Kami Ervin, Sustainability and Compliance Director at Danzer North America. “While Danzer's due diligence system is not new, having a program certified to the ANS LTDD Standard will further offer peace of mind to our stakeholders that we are providing a legal and responsible product to our customers. It is also easier for customers to communicate and prove the legality of their raw material, when they buy from a certified source.”
The new Danzer certificate applies to all Danzer wood and wood products in North America from logs to veneer, including higher risk items like exotic trade veneers.
Danzer is a leading quality hardwood company. Danzer owns and manages forests sustainably and produces sliced veneer, lumber and innovative value-added wood products for decorative purposes.
