Australian Standards® for Forest Management and Wood Products supply
AS4708 (The Australian Forestry Standard) and AS4707 (Chain of Custody Standard) were developed in accordance with Standards Australia procedures and have been accepted as Australian Standards.
The Standards Australia development process is clear and is rigorously defined and based on three internationally recognised principles of openness and transparency of process, consensus and balance.
AS4708 is intended for voluntary application by any forests in Australia being managed for wood production, whether native or planted forests.
Likewise, AS4707 is intended for voluntary application by any organisation that seeks to ensure its certified wood and forest products are sourced from a certified forest.
