FSC’s mission is to promote the environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable management of the world’s forests. It is increasingly recognized that association between FSC and organizations that are involved in unacceptable forest-related activities is harmful to FSC’s reputation and ultimately to its ability to deliver on its mission. In order to address this concern, in March 2007 the FSC Board of Directors mandated the FSC International Center to develop criteria for the association of third parties with FSC.

Through this policy FSC expects to be able to identify organizations not committed to the basic fundamentals of responsible forest management and prevent them from misusing their association with FSC.
