Help FSC streamline its standard setting processes by contributing to our second public consultation

FSC-PRO-01-001 The Development and Revision of FSC® Requirements provides the process steps for how to develop, review, revise, and withdraw international FSC requirements. FSC invites you to participate in the second public consultation of the procedure from 29 April – 30 June 2022 via the FSC Consultation Platform.

Our normative framework (policies, standards, procedures, among other documents) is the backbone of how we protect and manage forests worldwide. International FSC requirements are produced following the steps set out in FSC-PRO-01-001.

Revising this procedure is thus key in streamlining FSC’s normative framework to produce adaptive and user-friendly documents and continue effectively delivering on the FSC mission. Streamlining the FSC normative framework is a key goal in the FSC Global Strategy and we are looking for feedback from stakeholders to support this effort.

Key stakeholders for this consultation are FSC members, Network Partners/Regional Offices and FSC staff; but all input from any stakeholder group is welcome.

The procedure touches on governance topics, as it defines who takes decisions during the standard setting process. It also includes requirements for engaging members and stakeholders, how working groups operate and provisions for testing of requirements.
