Newport Timber is in the process of taking the step from active Sustainable Forest Initiative (SFI) Program Participant to third party certification to the SFI Standard. Independent third party certification to the SFI Standard provides verified assurance that a Program Participant’s practices in the field meet the SFI Standard requirements.

Newport Timber has retained a consultant, Scott Berg of R.S.Berg and Associates, to provide training and template documents necessary for review by an auditor. Training was conducted for Newport Timber employees on February 5.

Implementation of processes and systems to document compliance has begun. Plans are to select an auditor and achieve third party certification by the end of the third quarter of 2008.
