Auditors, reviewers, and certification decision makers are invited to express interest in initial PEFC recognised chain of custody training on the 3rd and 4th of August 2022.
It will only be held if there is sufficient interest to warrant holding the course. Please register your interest promptly.
This training is designed for qualified PEFC auditors, reviewers or certification decision makers that wish to issue certification against the 2020 PEFC chain of custody related standards, as required by PEFC ST 2003.
Issuing certification against the 2020 standards is not possible until completion of either initial or refresher training, and once you are accredited against the 2020 versions of the standards.
The training would take place online over two half days: 3-4 August, 10:00-15:00 (AEST). Please express interest now!
The training will provide an introduction to the revised 2020 PEFC Chain of Custody standard, focusing on the changes to the input-output process, the PEFC Due Diligence System (DDS), the chain of custody methods and multi-site certification. It will also cover changes to the 2020 PEFC Trademarks standard and 2020 Certification Body Requirements standard.
The participation fee for the initial training is 400 AUD.
Following the training, participants will have until the 25th of August 2022 to complete the online knowledge test.
Participants that pass the knowledge test will receive a PEFC recognised chain of custody training certificate within two weeks.
Successful participants will also be added to the PEFC register of trained auditors, reviewers and certification decision makers.
