First proposed a year ago, the plan had been expected to be finalized this summer – a timetable the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency stuck to despite push-back from some states and a U.S. Supreme Court ruling on a separate clean-air rule. Called the “Clean Power Plan” by the EPA, the rule is a centerpiece of a major push by President Barack Obama to help the United States – and the planet – attack climate change by reducing the amount of carbon pollution pumped into the air. The rule was announced in draft form amid fanfare in June 2014, and Obama and EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy have talked up its benefits, saying it would be a boon to public health, helping to reduce asthma and other respiratory ailments.

What to expect
Organized by PEFC International and PEFC Bulgaria, the two-day classroom training will first introduce the PEFC system and our organization. The technical part is a detailed walkthrough of the PEFC Chain of Custody standard, introducing all key requirements, combined with group exercises.
Why you should get training
With over 20,000 companies covered by PEFC Chain of Custody certification worldwide, the PEFC Chain of Custody standard is widely applied by certified companies, certification bodies and auditors on a daily basis.
Our auditor training ensures that everyone involved in the process is fully up-to-date on changes to the standard and on interpretation and explanation of specific requirements.
This enables the consistent application of the Chain of Custody requirements in daily practice, and allows us to exchange experiences with, and receive valuable feedback from auditors on the implementation of the standard.
Attending a PEFC-recognized training is also a precondition to become a qualified auditor.
Need to train several auditors?
If you work for a certification body with a high number of auditors, the PEFC Training Recognition Program might be a more efficient way to receive the PEFC training. See how you can take part in the program.
