FSC-STD-01-004 FSC Regulatory Module

Document Purpose

The FSC Regulatory Module is a voluntary standard to be used in addition to current FSC certification requirements for forest management, chain of custody and controlled wood to support demonstrating compliance with the EUDR.


Process Objectives

In this process, FSC is developing requirements linked to new requirements to support compliance with legislation such as REGULATION (EU) 2023/1115 (known as the European Union Deforestation Regulation, EUDR). Certificate holders who decide to get certified against this additional module will have a tool and additional independent assurance to support their efforts in demonstrating compliance with EUDR requirements as they can show competent authorities and other companies that relevant information has been gathered and due diligence exercised.

Technical Working Group

Internal FSC staff and an ASI representative comprise the technical working group.
