Public consultation on the proposal to revise the FSC-STD-20-002 (V3-0) EN Structure, content and local adaptation of Generic Forest Stewardship Standards launched


FSC invites stakeholder comments on the proposal to revise the FSC-STD-20-002


With the launch of the new procedure for “The Development and Revision of FSC Normative Documents” (FSC-PRO-01-001 V3-0) PSU is committed to publicly consult proposals for changes of existing policies and standards for a period of 30 days.

This consultation allows our stakeholders to comment on the proposed revision (e.g. agree/ disagree) and to give initial input and ideas on the issue under consultation.

We wish to propose the revision of FSC-STD-20-002 (V3-0) EN Structure, content and local adaptation of Generic Forest Stewardship Standards, based on GA Motion 2005:48 (Phase out the use of interim certification standards) and GA Motion 2011:25 (Use of interim standards for forest management certification)

After public consultation we will present the final proposal to the Policy and Standards Committee and to the FSC Board for approval. If approved, a formal revision process will be initiated according to FSC-PRO-01-001 V3-0.

If you would like to comment on this consultation or provide your feedback on the attached proposal, please send them to Pasi Miettinen (p.miettinen@fsc.org) by the 31st August 2013.
