OCP Update - New statement on the FSC Online Claims Platform

FSC has developed a new statement on the future of the OCP platform.


The statement announces some serious changes to the OCP implementation plan. The most important one of these is that the OCP will no longer be mandatory but will be offered as a voluntary tool. The next important point is that the new Chain of Custody (CoC) standard will include criteria which aim to close the gap in the current CoC system. The OCP can be used as a tool to address these criteria, but certificate holders will also be given the flexibility to use other methods to meet them.

The statement is available to download below.
