The Revised Principles & Criteria
Requirements for Forest Management Certification

© FSC GD

The Forest Stewardship Council’s Principles and Criteria (P&C) are the requirements certified forest owners, managers or forest industries must comply with in order to receive FSC forest management certification.

The Revised P&C (FSC-STD-01-001 V5-0) were approved in February 2012. Nevertheless, they shall not be used for audit until completion of the FSC International Generic Indicators and the transfer process of the National Standards is complete. Meanwhile, the previous version of the P&C (FSC-STD-01-001 V4-0) is to be used.
