Chain-of-Custody, or CoC, is a system of checks and balances used to verify the transfer of goods between two or more entities. This is particularly important in forestry and related industries, as it is used to track wood, wood fiber or paper from the forest through to the mill, to the printer and finally . . . on to the client. Any product that is Chain of Custody Certified is one that supports responsible forest management.
