New FSC CoC Standard – Do you know the changes?

The Forest Stewardship Council® has published a revised version of its Chain of Custody (CoC) Certification Standard (FSC-STD-40-004 V3-0), after more than two years of development and several public consultations.

Existing Certificate Holders can choose to switch to follow the new standard as soon as it comes into force on 1 April 2017.

This standard is applicable to all organisations that manufacture, process or trade FSC-certified products. By the end of the transition period – March 31, 2018 – all certified companies must be audited against the new standard.
