FSC Standard Interpretations are now available on the FSC website

FSC provides Standard Interpretations where these are necessary to ensure consistent application of the FSC standards. The Standard Interpretations are official interpretations of the FSC Policy and Standards Unit to be applied in certification processes.


Previously, the Standard Interpretations were only accessible in the members’ area of the FSC website (FSC Intranet). Now all interpretations are also published on the FSC website, according to thematic area and further subdivided by the related standard. Currently interpretations exist for the following six areas: General, Forest Management, Chain of Custody, Controlled Wood, Trademark and Pesticides.Whenever a new Standard Interpretation is published it will be announced in the FSC Technical News.The Standard Interpretations can be accessed here.
