The draft of the PEFC Sustainable Forest Management Meta-Standard has been released for public comment.  The Meta-Standard provides the base document against which all PEFC endorsed National Standards must align.  It provides requirements for performance and sustainability indicators.  The amended draft provides new performance requirements for the sustainable management of trees located outside of forests and micro-forestry.  Such sources of wood are becoming increasingly important, especially in developing Countries.
