Alloway Timber buy and sell large volumes of timber and timber based materials for the building industry and DIY markets.
Alloway Timber has implemented a chain of custody procedure to ensure compliance with the Forest Stewardship Council (F.S.C.) and the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) criteria. As part of this system it is the policy of Alloway Timber to avoid using wood that has been illegally harvested or wood from genetically modified trees and from uncertified high conservation value old-growth forests and in full consideration of the CITES list.
Management will be responsible for implementing this policy and the Chain of Custody Management Representative (COCMR) has the day to day responsibility to ensure that this statement is carried out and that certification of our chain of custody is maintained to the highest level.
If it is demonstrated that Alloway Timber is using wood from such illegal sources, we will promptly take appropriate actions, including stopping purchases from the sources for products covered by this policy.
Alloway Timber are committed to making best efforts to ensure that the company’s percentage based claim is maintained and that the percentage of certified material bought and sold increases in line with our documented buying plan. We will work closely with all of our suppliers to encourage greater use of certified timber and panel products so that our continual improvement programme can be sustained.
On some products, where certified material is as yet unavailable, we will continue to seek alternative sources or work with the supplying company to implement their own chain of custody within given and agreed time-scales.
Alloway Timber will work with our certification body to ensure that all criteria required by the FSC and the PEFC are met and that any non conformances are corrected without delay.
