Audit and certification

The audit is a methodical process, independant and documented allowing to obtain audit evidences and evaluate it in an objective way to determine how audit criteria are respected. Its criteria can be very variable according to the aim or the standard which must be respected.

A forest owner (natural or legal entity) can also asks for an audit of operation of his property, or a bilan sheet of assets (patrimonial evaluation). The aim is, in this case, to evaluate the value (economic, social, environmental) of the asset or the efficiency of company's operation (for the Groupements Forestiers for example).

The company Bechon audit more than 1000 ha of forests for settlement or transfert of property
