Can your business Keep Up with the regulations?
How can you do all the due diligence necessary to comply to regulations... without affecting business?
Due Diligence System
Do you know the first step to setting up a due diligence process that works?
Assess Supplier Risk
The regulations don't always specify how to do this - can you ensure compliance from each supplier?
Know Local Regulations
You'd also need to know the regulations in each country of harvest and production...
Mitigate Risk
If you can identify all the risks, how do you take steps to mitigate them - continuously?
Verify Documents
And which specific documents and records need to be verified... and translated!
Store & Manage Data
Then you'd have to figure out how to keep accessible records of all this data you've gathered.
Present Evidence
And how do you present evidence of due diligence to authorities? How much is enough?
Maintain Relationships
Can you question and verify your suppliers without hurting your relationship with them?
AND Keep Growing
And you'd have to build a new department to handle all this - without taking your eye off growth.
But I Can Just Do It On My Own... Right?
The regulations don’t provide you with a checklist of how to guarantee compliance. 

You’ll need to manage the complexity of the legal requirements across the many countries you’re sourcing your materials from. This creates uncertainty and stress. 

It means you have to collect a ton of evidence to demonstrate compliance across all of your supply chains. Even then, you can’t be entirely sure...

Case Study - Brooks Bros, UK
One of the UK's leading suppliers of timber products, Brooks Bros (UK) Ltd, wanted to provide assurances to their customers and stakeholders about their oak flooring supply from China, and communicate what they are doing in a credible way. 

The white oak is claimed to be harvested from Europe and is imported into China for processing. 
The Full Solution: 
Supply Chain Transparency x Product Traceability
1. We started with a risk assessment to map out the supply chain and identify any risks.

2. We use a local, bilingual team based in Beijing and Singapore to ensure good communication with both the Chinese supplier and UK staff. 

3. Isotope testing is applied to provide independent evidence and assurance of European origin.

4. Using our knowledge of local Chinese regulations, we ensure compliance with manufacturing and export regulations through a customised verification process of document checks. 

5. Finally, every step of risk assessment, risk mitigation and supplier engagement is carefully documented so that full evidence of due diligence is available when required and integrates into the Brooks Bros’ existing Due Diligence System.
We'll get you sleeping like a log.

Here's The Science Behind It
A scientific approach provides unrivalled assurance of product claims, and demonstrates best-practice due diligence.
DNA ANALYSIS
DNA can be extracted from timber products and tested for:

1. Barcoding (identify species)
2. Phylogeography (identify country or region of origin)
3. Fingerprinting (identify individual trees)

DNA is extracted and compared to a reference database. In the case of fingerprinting, DNA from product is compared with DNA taken from log or stump.
STABLE ISOTOPES
Trees absorb different levels of chemical isotopes from the air, water and soil depending on the geographic location.

Isotope tests identify the ratio of chemicals present which are then assessed against a known database.
WOOD ANATOMY
Wood anatomists can determine the genus or sometimes the species of wood by examining features in the wood's structure. In cases where a species or genus is endemic to a particular geographic location, a determination of origin can be made.
COMMUNICATE
This is where you'd get the most value out of our service - Nature's Barcode doesn't only work in the background, it also communicates to your clients your best efforts. 

With a customised product webpage just for you, and a QR code on your product labels, we bring the story to your customers.
