What has changed?

This document establishes the requirements for certification bodies carrying out PEFC chain of custody certification.

As we continue to make our standards more robust, this revision will require that auditors have specific experience on PEFC Chain of Custody audits and includes requirements for certification decision makers.

The standard will also reflect our commitment towards gender responsive standards, ensuring that certification bodies consider gender equity within the personnel involved in the certification activities and the audit team.

We also look to modernize the certification procedures, by considering the use of technology in remote auditing for client organizations without physical handling of finished and labelled products.
