Registered SDGs


The FSC standard ‘FSC-STD-60-006’ outlines the process requirements for the development and maintenance of National Forest Stewardship Standards. It aims to provide a clear basis for evaluating proposals and workplans for the development of Forest Stewardship Standards, to ensure that they comply with FSC international requirements before they are developed.

Until now many standards have been developed with reference to FSC, but they do not qualify for approval as they do not conform to FSC requirements. This has caused serious delays and setbacks for those developing national and regional Forest Stewardship Standards.

How it works: 

First, the process must be registered by completing Annex A and submitting this to the FSC Policy and Standards Unit. Then, the Standards Development Group receives an official confirmation to begin developing the FSC National Forest Stewardship Standard.
 
If there is no official FSC Network Partner, the right to develop FSC National Forest Stewardship Standard is given to the Standards Development Group. This lifts the restriction that only Network Partners must develop standards for their country. However, it also sets strict requirements for a balanced representation of stakeholder interests in the process – one of the key strengths of the FSC system.

The table below shows the FSC Standards Development Groups that have been registered with the Policy and Standards Unit to develop or transfer their existing national standards to the new version of the FSC Principles and Criteria (FSC-STD-01-001 V5).
