Anderson Hardwood Floors and Mullican Flooring are participating in a pilot program to test the audit phase of the Responsible Procurement Program from the National Wood Flooring Association. The audits are being conducted by Scientific Certification Systems, a third-party, Forest Stewardship Council-accredited certifier.

SCS is working with the two flooring makers to “design, develop and test the audit process,” NWFA said. The Responsible Procurement Program is strictly voluntary, and aims to recognize wood flooring companies that practice socially and environmentally responsible forestry. The program is split into three tiers signifying different levels of participation.
