RockTenn, Norcross, Ga., USA, has received triple chain-of-custody (CoC) certification for all of its corrugated packaging facilities including converting, graphics and preprint locations. The company’s certified corrugated converting facilities include locations in Athens, Ala., Camillus, N.Y., Dayton, N.J., Deer Park, N.Y., Devens, Mass., Gallatin, Tenn., Hauppauge, N.Y., Lancaster, Pa., Mooresville, N.C. Murfreesboro, Tenn., Newark, N.J., Norcross, Ga., and Spartanburg, S.C. Certified graphics and preprint operations include locations in Dayton, N.J. Hebron, Ky., and Mississauga, Ont., Canada.

These facilities are now independently certified to standards of the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI), Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), and Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC), representing the leading global forestry certification bodies. These organizations provide standards for third-party validation of each plant's documented processes and chain-of-custody monitoring.

Additionally, all facilities are certified to SFI's fiber sourcing procurement requirements. This combination of certifications provides RockTenn customers with the highest degree of flexibility in making chain-of-custody or fiber sourcing claims.

"The certifications will help our facilities meet growing customer demands for verification of fiber sourcing and proof of sustainable forest/fiber management," said Jim Porter, executive VP, RockTenn. "We are proud to provide our customers with the most stringent fiber certification possible, along with satisfying their needs as a high quality, low cost producer."
