Sawmills and round fencing manufacturers were also asked whether they held a Chain of Custody certificate. 69% of sawmills for which the certification status was known held a Chain of Custody certificate in 2017 (Table 2.29). This proportion varied with size of mill, from 36% for mills producing less than 5 thousand m3 sawnwood to 100% for those producing 25 thousand m3 sawnwood or more. The majority (63%) of round fencing manufacturers for which the certification status was known held a Chain of Custody certificate.
