A comprehensive solution
The DoubleHelix solution to risk management starts with an understanding of your existing compliance systems. We aim to seamlessly integrate with your existing approach.
We then provide confidential, product-specific risk assessment and advisory services to identify gaps in your supply partners' ability to meet compliance and quality requirements.
Based on the results of the risk assessment, we recommend various risk control methods to address the gaps. The whole process of risk assessment, control and implementation is fully documented to form a comprehensive record of your compliance efforts, ensuring peace of mind for you and your leadership team.
A scientific approach
We use scientific verification throughout our process to control the risk of illegal timber entering your supply chains.
DoubleHelix pioneered the use of DNA, stable isotopes, wood anatomy and other scientific solutions to independently verify product claims of species and origin. This vastly simplifies what can often be a complex and confusing document verification process.
By combining scientific verification with targeted on-site inspection by local teams, timber product claims can be verified in the most cost-effective and reliable way. Helping our clients understand which scientific approach is appropriate to employ is a key part of our service offering.
