Open now: Public consultation to strengthen FSC standards and continue fighting deforestation globally

FSC is updating its sustainable forestry requirements under FSC EUDR Aligned – a modular set of solutions that will support FSC certificate holders to comply with the EU Regulation on Deforestation-free Products (EUDR). This consultation includes system-wide changes to align with the intention of FSC’s Policy to Address Conversion and the updated FSC Risk Assessment Framework. The public consultation for these requirements is open from 1 February to 1 March 2024 on the Consultation Platform.

A key part of FSC’s offer is the development of requirements for the FSC Regulatory Module: a voluntary module that complements existing FSC certification requirements to support EUDR compliance. It presents additional forest management, chain of custody and controlled wood requirements for organizations looking to use their FSC certification to support their efforts to demonstrate compliance with EUDR. The FSC Regulatory Module sets the framework and requirements to:
*introduce a due diligence system to support EUDR compliance, including information collection, risk assessment and risk mitigation,
*gather and transmit precise information on the origin of products (geolocation and time of production), and
*adds further assurance that only deforestation-free material enters an FSC chain of custody value chain that needs to be EUDR compliant.
