One subscription for a single mill is $500/yr. Any additional mill will be an additional $500/yr, up to three mills. For companies wishing to subscribe for more than three mills, there is a flat fee of $1500/year. Wood dealer yards and consulting firms may purchase a single subscription for $400/yr.
Fees are based on annual, unlimited use for each facility and its own individual network of wood procurement and verification. Upon receipt of the fee, subscribers will be given password access to the on-line verification system. The password can be shared by the subscriber to appropriate verifiers within the facility’s procurement network. However, supporting facility procurement entities such as wood buyers and other extra-company wood consolidation entities will need to subscribe separately. To login, visit www.atfsdatabase.org
Fees are assessed yearly on the date the contract was signed by the subscriber. Passwords expire at year’s end and companies must renew in order to continue to use the OVS.
