Customer Notice - 11/09/23
As a valued customer I am writing to share with you that from the 1st of January 2024 we will be changing the way we treat timber certification. After much consideration we have chosen to make some changes which should have a positive impact on what we can offer you. It is important to us that we focus on supplying you with a wide range of products and to do this we feel we need to offer products over a wider range of timber certification schemes.
Since 2003 we at BPS have been supplying timber products which included in our descriptions either FSC, PEFC or legally sourced certification, within this we would only sell each specific certification type individually, instead all our timber products will now include in our descriptions where necessary ‘responsibly sourced’ meaning we can include other certification types.
We are focused on sustainability, but we also believe in consistently reviewing how we operate as a business, reviewing to ensure we have access to the right products for our customers. We feel that the marketplace is always changing and there are other certification schemes we should have access to, and in turn our customers should too. By making these changes and following this new path, it will enable us as a business to consider, purchase and sell other certification types.
The good news is you don’t need to do anything, we will still follow a strict procurement policy following the UKTR timber regulation and we will do the necessary due diligence to ensure we are sourcing from our suppliers ‘responsibly sourced’ timber products. These changes though will enable us to accept a mixture of both FSC, PEFC or any other recognized certification scheme. This will apply to all timber products and will be robust enough to meet the requirements for those customers who require certified timber goods.
We will still have available upon request from our chain of custody manager information on all of our individual timber products, such as country of origin, certification scheme, timber species etc. We want to thank you in advance for your support and patience. We look forward to growing our business with you as we embrace this change.
