Participate in our consultation: review report of the procedure for development and revision of FSC normative documents

The procedure specifies how FSC normative documents are developed, reviewed and revised. The review report on FSC’s main standard setting procedure (FSC-PRO-01-001) is now available for public consultation until 31 August 2019.


The FSC Performance and Standards Unit (PSU) has conducted a regular review of the procedure for the development and revision of FSC normative documents and concluded that a revision process is needed.

The revision process is a core contribution to streamlining the FSC normative framework in accordance with the Global Strategic Plan 2015-2020. It aims to simplify the procedure, accelerate development and revision processes, fill gaps, and make it more effective.

Please access the review report on the FSC consultation platform.
