All BBCo boats are manufactured in Australia and are made from 100 percent sustainable wood sources. We use wood that is tracked through chain of custody to ensure that all wood comes from legal and sustainable sources.

What is Chain of Custody?

Chain of Custody is an environmental certification system that ensures that there is an unbroken chain from a certified, sustainable forest, right through to the customer. It ensures that all resource is from legal and known origins, and that there is traceability of all resource inputs.


The Austral Plywoods product range is certified for Chain of Custody under AS 4707:2006. The Austral Plywoods Chain of Custody, linked to the Australian Forestry Standard (AFS), was awarded through an independently audited process carried out by the Engineered Wood Products Association of Australasia (EWPAA) – accredited by JAS-ANZ.

Recognised as Australian Standards

The AFS certification scheme is the only Australian independent certification process that provides Australian Forest Management Certification (AS 4708) and Chain of Custody Certification (AS 4707). It is the only Chain of Custody Standard recognised as Australian Standards.
