National Standards

Integrating local expertise with the FSC system

National StandardsThe FSC Principles and Criteria (P&C) set out the global requirements for achieving FSC forest management certification. 

However, any international standard for forest management needs to be adapted at the regional or national level in order to reflect the diverse legal, social and geographical conditions of forests in different parts of the world.
