Overview

Title FSC Conditions Framework – FSC roadmap for Schweighofer (Consultation draft by the Stakeholder Working Group)
Start and End Date 23 May 2017 – 21 June (30 day public consultation)
Purpose of the document under consultation

The FSC ‘Conditions Framework’ stipulates the conditions that must be fulfilled by the Schweighofer Group (HS) for correcting the identified shortcomings and wrongdoings, compensating for the environmental and social damages resulting therefrom, and preventing the reoccurrence of any previously identified, or ongoing, wrongdoings and/or violations of the FSC’s Policy for Association, in order for FSC to consider an ending of its disassociation from HS.

The FSC ‘Conditions Framework’ also defines how the fulfilment of the conditions will be verified (in the form of ‘Verification Indicators’).
