Developing national forest management standards
All stakeholders will be invited and able to participate in the process, whether it is through active participation in the national working group or through submitting input and comments in the 60-day public consultation.
National standards need to be reviewed after a five-year implementation cycle. We keep track of the exact date by when this review shall have started. We call this date the “review date”. It serves as a helpful reminder for when you can expect the review process to start in your country and to offer your nomination for the national working group.
Visit our national member section to find out the review date of the forest management standard in your country, or contact your national member directly for further information.
Assessing the Responsible Wood standards
This consultation enables you, as a global stakeholder, to comment and provide feedback on any aspect of a national forest certification system. PEFC International also organizes webinars to introduce the system and highlight the main aspects, to help you give an informed opinion.
We then give your comments to the independent assessor responsible for verifying the national standards meet our international requirements.
