The blocked organizations shall not carry out any activities associated with FSC. This includes, but is not limited to, trading FSC-certified products with FSC claims, labelling products as FSC certified, providing outsourcing services of FSC certified materials, joining a group or multi-site certification, etc.
Companies that do not, in good faith, follow the requirements of the FSC system will find themselves increasingly under scrutiny by FSC and Assurance Services International (ASI) as the system takes strong measures against companies that trade with non-conforming products and/or use false FSC claims. FSC recommends certification bodies and buyers to check the certification history of FSC new applicants or FSC suppliers. To get a full list of companies blocked for FSC certification, search on info.fsc.org by sorting certificate status for ‘suspended and blocked’ and ‘terminated and blocked’.
