Although Stacy Kontrabecki is an experienced FSC Forest Management Auditor, her real passion lies in the supply chain. Since 2008 Stacy has conducted initial and annual CB surveillance audits on FSC CoC certificate holders in the New-England, Mid-Atlantic and Mid-Western markets. She is a certified FSC CoC Lead auditor trained by Walter Smith and an ISO 9001 certified auditor.
Stacy has audited over a hundred FSC certified companies for certification bodies and FSC CoC Group managers. She provides accessible FSC Standards interpretation to clients while maintaining the objective role of 3rd-party auditor. It is easy for Stacy to balance between informing clients of requirements versus consulting.
Stacy is comprehensive in her evaluations, with an attention to detail that covers ALL criteria of the standards while delivering a warm, congenial audit experience to the client. Her focus is on effective implementation of conforming procedures and not on random human error or irrelevant minutiae. Stacy's work is a result of relevant sampling of FSC production and staff present on site for interviews. It is not uncommon for clients to request Stacy again as their auditor in subsequent years.
