FSC risk assessments for Argentina, Colombia, Thailand, Hungary, and Slovenia are now available

With effect from 16 April 2019, organisations seeking to source controlled wood from Argentina, Colombia, Thailand, Hungary or Slovenia are required to use the latest FSC risk assessments to conform with standard FSC-STD-40-005 Requirements for Sourcing FSC Controlled Wood.


Please note that only categories 1, 2, 4, and 5 were approved for the CNRA for Colombia. Therefore, we encourage organisations to use those categories when developing their own extended company risk assessments to source material from Colombia.

FSC risk assessments are used to determine the risk of an organisation obtaining material from unacceptable wood sources when sourcing controlled wood. To view all available FSC risk assessments, please visit the FSC Document Centre.

To view the current status of all FSC risk assessments that are being developed, please visit the risk assessment database.
