Public Consultation launched on FSC Advice Note on Non-conforming Products

FSC is currently developing an Advice Note on Non-conforming Products.


This Advice note has been drafted to strengthen the existing chain of custody system by introducing an additional safeguard to handle non-conforming product and to prevent that non-certified products are delivered as certified.

Non-conforming products are products or material for which an organization is unable to demonstrate that it complies with FSC requirements for making claims and/ or for using the FSC on-product labels.
