What is a Unique Wood Source?

This video and step by step guide will teach you how to create a new Unique Wood Source in SURE. A Unique Wood Source is one component of a product. It may be a solid wood product or a composite wood product, and it may have more than one supply chain.

How to create a Unique Wood Source

  1. First, select Wood Source Details on the left side menu.

    Then on the Unique Wood Source overview screen, select Add Wood Source Details.

  2. You need to give your new Unique Wood Source a name and a Raw Material Type.

  3. Now you need to complete a supply chain form. Your Unique Wood Source may have more than one supply chain.

    Select the green cross to add a new row.

    The form will open and you will need to fill in all the information.

    If the whole supply chain is covered by a licence or certification scheme, you will need to provide details of the scheme name etc. and the certification documents. For more information on FLEGT licences please see our FAQ page. 

  4. Once you have completed the form, click the ‘Save’ button at the bottom of the window.

  5. You should then return to the Unique Wood Source screen in SURE. You should see that your supply chain has appeared.

    If your wood source contains more than one supply chain, add the additional supply chains as above.

  6. You have the option to save and continue later, or complete the Unique Wood Source and make it available to use in a pre-order.

Once you have saved the Unique Wood Source to use in a pre-order, the status will change to ‘Entered’.
