The FSC International Generic Indicators (IGI) Working Group have concluded their work on the First Draft for Consultation of Principles 1–5, 8 and 9. This will form the first package available for public consultation on the IGIs. The consultation draft is available, below, for download.

A second package, covering Principles 6, 7 and 10, will be available by 1 March 2013. The consultation period will start after the second package has been made available and will last 60 days.

The consultation period will be your opportunity to contribute to the development of the IGIs, which will form the baseline for FSC National Standards, and replace the Certification Body Standards where they still exist. Details about the consultation, including Regional and National Processes, will be posted on the IGI website. Stakeholders are encouraged to use these consultations to give their feedback on the draft IGIs.

Further information will be posted on our website in due course.
