FSC-PRO-60-002 The Development and Approval of FSC National Risk Assessments

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

Note: Document code of FSC Risk Assessment Framework Procedure is changed to "FSC-PRO-60-006b" 

Planned duration

March 2021 - March 2024

Process background

The period of validity of 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.

Process objective

Revision of the FSC Controlled Wood Procedure for The Development and Approval of FSC National Risk Assessments (FSC PRO-60-002 V3-0) and National Risk Assessment Framework (FSC PRO-60-002a V1-0) in line with the strategy on FSC Mix products and controlled wood.
