FSC does not encourage the movement of clients between certification bodies, but recognizes that there may be circumstances in which such movement is legitimate and appropriate. FSC's objective in such case is to ensure that clients are treated fairly and objectively, whilst ensuring that transfer between certification bodies cannot become a tool by which clients can evade or avoid their obligations to comply with FSC certification requirements or any contractual obligations.
