Participate in public consultation on joint Review Report of generic FSC certification body standard and related procedure

The public consultation is open between 11 July and 14 August 2022 and will be used to collect stakeholder feedback on the joint review report of FSC-STD-20-001 V4-0 General requirements for FSC accredited certification bodies and two related procedures, FSC-PRO-20-003 V1-0 FSC Certificates and License Agreements and FSC-PRO-20-004 V1-2 General Requirements for an FSC Training Programme.

Due to interlinkages, the review report proposes a joint revision, including the consideration of how the documents can be streamlined. The documents in the review report are as follows:
FSC-STD-20-001 V4-0: this standard ensures that FSC accredited certification programs are managed in a competent, consistent, impartial, transparent, rigorous, reliable and credible manner. The standard was developed to ensure conformity with ISEAL requirements and compatibility with DIN EN ISO/IEC 17065:2013-01.

FSC-PRO-20-003 V1-0: this procedure applies a consistent set of process requirements to facilitate the voluntary transfer of certificate holders from one certification body to another.

FSC-PRO-20-004 V1-2: this procedure ensures consistent initial and ongoing qualifications of auditors through implementation of an FSC Training Programme.
