I am now a director of The Group Scheme Ltd. The Group Scheme is an FSC chain of custody scheme for printers and print related businesses.
The Group Scheme operates an FSC Group Chain of Custody Scheme. It has been set up so that smaller businesses can have access to FSC Chain of Custody in an affordable way.
Membership of this The Group Scheme is open to businesses that have fewer than 15 employees. However, for larger businesses assessment can be arranged via BMTRADA certifications.
A monthly payment scheme is available, which helps to make membership of The Group Scheme attainable for even the smallest business.
Cost effective training in the Chain of Custody standard is provided using qualified print-sector specialists utilising a ready- made template which minimises costs.
The initial training and pre-assessment costs approximately £800, with the annual assessment at £670 per business site.
