BM TRADA was pleased to host a visit from senior representatives of the PEFC International Technical Unit last month.
Michael Berger (Head of Technical Unit), Christian Kämmer (Technical Officer) and Johan Vlieger (Technical Officer) met with key BM TRADA staff to gain insight into the day to day operations of an accredited certification body. The PEFC team also took the opportunity to observe a fire test at BM TRADA fire testing facility.
Tom Johnston, Chief Operating Officer of BM TRADA Central Certification Services said ‘The meeting with the PEFC team proved invaluable to improving understanding and communication for all parties and builds on PEFC’s objective of increasing dialogue and consultation with its key stakeholders.’
Whilst in the UK, the PEFC International team visited BM TRADA client Morans Wood Components to witness a Chain of Custody audit first hand, and see for themselves how certification works in the context of the PEFC standard.
