NSF International Strategic Registrations (NSF-ISR), a global leader in management systems registrations, has expanded its environmental services to provide Sustainable Forestry Initiative verification and ISO 14001 certification to the forest and paper industry. NSF-ISR offers a number of advantages to forest and paper companies seeking verification:
NSF-ISR places a high priority on auditing to the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) standard. We do not try to anticipate changes to the standard or rely on the personal interpretation of the auditor. Rather, NSF-ISR auditors are trained to audit to the specific language in the standard and do not invent requirements that are not there.

You will find that our audit process is very straightforward, with no surprises along the way. Our SFI verification audit process is governed by pre-established operating procedures that both the client and the audit team understand going into the audit. When the client submits an application, the audit team uses it to identify the scope, scale and complexity of the organization or organizational entities undergoing the audit. The application also reveals the specific indicators and evidence that the client intends to use to demonstrate conformance with the SFI standard. A lead auditor will be assigned to each organization to see the audit process through from start to finish.
Our history and expertise in the environmental industry speak for themselves - NSF-ISR was the second registrar to obtain ANAB accreditation of its EMS program and is now the leader in completed EMS registrations in North America. Because we helped to write the ISO 14001 standard, our knowledge of the industry is unparalleled. In addition, we have earned the trust of the EPA in developing EMS implementation guidance documents for those organizations seeking to develop an EMS program. To obtain our free EMS guides and reports, please see our articles and publications section. To learn more about our EMS registrations, please see the ISO 14001 section of our website.
NSF-ISR currently performs over 20,000 audits per year for over 6,000 clients located in 80 countries throughout the world. Our audits are widely regarded as the best designed, documented and implemented worldwide. Let us help you achieve the recognition and respect that your SFI program deserves.
