FSC has established a technical working group to revise the trademark standard, FSC-STD-50-002 (V1-0): Requirements for promotional use of the FSC trademarks by non-certificate holders

The working group comprises six participants who represent FSC trademark service providers. The group will be responsible for developing and providing detailed input into the development of the standard. In addition to the working group, FSC will work with in-house experts from our legal, marketing, and chain of custody teams

FSC sent out a call for stakeholders and technical experts to join the technical working group at the beginning of July. The deadline for application was 31 July 2017.The selected applicants are:
Ilka Klee, FSC Germany
Kristian Jørgensen, FSC Denmark
Beth Bennett, FSC UK
Paola Cassana, FSC Latin America
Jayco Fung, FSC Asia Pacific
Jenny (Wood) Anderson, FSC USA

FSC has not yet received any applications from non-certificate holders to join the technical working group. As a result, it has been decided to keep calling for applications from non-certificate holders until appropriate candidates are found.

If you believe you can make a contribution in this area, please apply by filling out the online application form.All information – terms of reference, current policy, membership of the working group, and additional resources – can be found here.

FSC stakeholders are also invited to contribute to the revision of this standard by taking part in a consultative forum about technical issues relating to the revision.
