  1. Why does the number of certificates presented on the map differ from those in the pdf documents published on the FSC website?

    The data in FSC database is stored with certain accuracy (e.g. certain decimal). Depending on the purpose of data extraction, numbers are rounded up to a different decimal, therefore differences occur. Additionally, data for different purposes is extracted at different times from our database, which leads to variances.
