National risk assessment for USA available

Tuesday, 30 April 2019

Effective 5 April 2019, organizations seeking to source controlled wood from the USA – except Alaska, Hawaii and outlying territories - are required to use the latest FSC risk assessment to conform with standard FSC-STD-40-005 Requirements for Sourcing FSC Controlled Wood.

FSC risk assessments are used to determine the risk of an organization obtaining material from unacceptable wood sources when sourcing controlled wood.

The national risk assessment for the USA covers only the coterminous USA (therefore excluding Alaska, Hawaii, and US territories).

To view all available FSC risk assessments, please visit the FSC Document Centre.

To view the current status of all FSC risk assessments that are being developed, please visit the risk assessment database.
