Advice Note on Non-conforming Products

© FSC GD - Jean Baptiste Lopez

Background

Status

The development process is completed.

Objectives

To strengthen the existing chain of custody system by introducing an additional safeguard to handle non-conforming product and to prevent that non-certified products are delivered as certified.

Further process

The advice note was approved and first published in November 2012. An amended advice note was published in February 2013.
