The FSC Board of Directors approved the following as FSC policy in relation to 'stepwise', 'modular' or 'phased' approaches (referred to collectively as 'modular approaches') to forest certification, at its 37th meeting in June 2005:
FSC believes that credible modular approaches to forest certification have the potential to make a major contribution to the promotion of environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable management of the world's forests;
It is critically important to ensure that modular approaches do not undermine the promotion of sustainable forest management by creating new labels and brands aimed at consumers seeking responsibly managed forest products.
