FSC-PRO-60-002a  FSC National Risk Assessment Framework

Note: The document code of FSC Risk Assessment Framework Procedure has been changed to "FSC-PRO-60-006b". 

Document Purpose

The period of validity of the procedures FSC PRO-60-002 V3-0 and FSC PRO-60-002a V1-0 ended on 31 December 2019. Additionally, during the creation of 60 FSC risk assessments, weaknesses in the procedure and its annex were identified. Moreover, the FSC strategy for FSC Mix products and controlled wood aspires to increase FSC’s impact outside of certification, of which the FSC risk assessments are a major component.

It is important to highlight that during the preparation for the revision of the process requirements for the development and maintenance of Forest Stewardship Standards (FSS) (under a separate revision process), PSU team has further identified the opportunity to merge those process requirements with process requirements for the development and maintenance of CW risk assessments (currently in FSC-PRO-60-002 V3-0). PSU presented the concept and results of a feasibility exercise to the Policy Steering Group (PSG), which supported merger of process requirements for developing and maintaining FSC FSS with FSC-PRO-60-002 V3-0. As a result, starting in 2023, the revision process includes FSC-PRO-60-002 requirements under its scope. For further information about that revision process, please access to the following link
