Public Consultation Open: Generic Indicators for the Use of Highly Hazardous Pesticides

The second draft of FSC International Generic Indicators for the use of Highly Hazardous Pesticides (FSC-STD-60-004a) is available from 10 Feb 2021 through 18 April 2021 for public consultation and can be accessed here. We invite all stakeholders to provide feedback.


The public consultation features a series of questions on the second draft of the proposed International Generic Indicators (IGIs) for use and risk management of Highly Hazardous Pesticides (HHPs) for stakeholder feedback. FSC encourages all interested stakeholders to provide their input during the consultation as additional input is critical to the final draft.

This second draft has been developed by the technical working group after taking the feedback received from the first public consultation from last year into consideration. A synopsis report is available to provide further guidance and clarification on the changes made to the first draft to address the feedback received from the first public consultation.

For more information about the project, please visit the FSC International webpage here.
