Our auditing work
We provide forest and sawmill auditing services in Indonesia against the CertiSource Legality Assessment Standard. CertiSource is 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.
These registers are updated monthly. To request additional traceability information on your specific product label verification number, please visit www.certisource.org.
What our clients say
"I believe our success is based on a combination of great product, unbeatable client service and the utmost assurance of the legality of our products with CertiSource.
Over the course of a long-term partnership with DoubleHelix, Simmonds has won major sales opportunities in the highly competitive Australian market for outdoor decking. We've been able to generate trust and credibility through DoubleHelix services that show beyond doubt that we only source from well managed, legal forest concessions.
Our stakeholders have now come to expect this approach from Simmonds, in partnership with DoubleHelix, in all of our ventures. We will continue to lead the way with our DNA Lumber® product line offering the highest quality hardwood products with "Due Care" built in to provide peace of mind to our customers."
