It is a strategic component that defines requirements for the quality management system. It defines operations standards and promotes the monitoring and traceability of processes which favors greater integration between all company departments through a model of organizational levels of hierarchy.

In 2016, reaching for continuous improvement for its services and products, Araupel won the right to use this quality seal – which is valid in more than 170 countries and has more than 1 million certified companies. The scope is based on the production and marketing of logs, rough-sawn lumber, S4S, blocks , blanks , boards , moulding, panels, door, window, stair and furniture components and biomass.

Forest Stewardship Council® – FSC®

Araupel has the Chain of Custody certification (FSC-C128572) from the Forest Stewardship Council ® – FSC. This recognition is of great importance in the global context of the forestry products sector.

The certification meets the FSC principles, which concerns the optimization of natural resources in an environmentally correct, socially fair and economically viable manner. It allows the company to use the FSC seal on its final product, a way to guide buyers and consumers about the responsible source of forest raw material, as certification requires tracking of the wood from harvest to the commercialization of finished products.
