The technical Committee work is focused on reviewing drafts of all Control Wood-related documents that are under revision.
The main issues under consideration by Technical Committee members are:
I. Audits and sampling
II. Stakeholder consultation (for companies and CBs)
III. Stakeholder access to information
IV. Complaints mechanism
V. Determining and keeping records on district of origin
VI. Situations of ‘unspecified risk’ where Annex 3 may not be appropriate
VII. The five Controlled Wood categories
VIII. CB Controlled Wood Accreditation Standard
Now in high gear, the Controlled Wood revision process offers many opportunities for your participation – including two rounds of stakeholder consultation on the standard drafts.
