FSC – Forest Stewardship Council
The Forest Stewardship Council is an international association of members consisting of a diverse group of representatives from environmental and social groups, the timber trade and the forestry profession, indigenous people’s organisations, responsible corporations, community forestry groups and forest product certification organisations from around the world.

CertiSource offers a new approach to timber certification. Timber must be traceable through supply chains where every entity (forests, sawmills and even traders) adheres to strict legal, social and environmental criteria. The CertiSource Standard goes beyond basic legal requirements and puts forest concessions and sawmills on the road to sustainable forest management.

Glued Laminated Timber Association of Australia
The GLTAA was formed by glulam producers to set industry standards and implement a code of practice and policing policy, in order to add credibility to the product and therefore to those manufacturers who are approved as members.

ATIF – Australian Timber Importers Federation
ATIF is governed by a constitution and board of directors. The Federation interacts with Federal Government ministers and departments on various issues, such as the strategic importance of timber imports to housing and domestic employment, legality assurance and certification systems and forest management policy and practice.
