Certification Body Training Recognition Programme (afternoon)

Certification Body Training Recognition Programme (afternoon)


Due to very high demand, this training session is now full, and it is no longer possible to register. For more information, please contact training@pefc.org.

The details

Part of our PEFC Training Recognition Programme (TRP) for certification bodies. This session will focus on technical calibration for the 2020 standards and the certification body internal training recognition requirements.

Following this training, certification bodies can apply for recognition of their internal trainings. Once approved, they can provide internal PEFC training to their own auditors.

The session is being held online over three half-days: 7, 9, 11 September 2020, 13:00 to 17:30 CEST. We are also holding the same session on 20, 22, 24 July 2020, 8:30 to 13:00 CEST, to ensure certification bodies around the world are able to attend. 

Why attend the training?

Through our PEFC Training Recognition Programme (TRP), certification bodies can get formal recognition of their internal PEFC chain of custody training programme and carry out internal trainings in compliance with PEFC's requirements.

The main advantage is that you do not have to plan how and when every individual participant can attend a training organized by PEFC. Instead, you can decide yourself when to train them.

This TRP training is also in line with the 2020 standards. Once your internal training programme is recognized, you will be able to train your auditors to carry out audits against the 2020 PEFC Chain of Custody standard. 

The steps to PEFC recognition

Following your participation in the training, you will need to develop and submit the content and process description of your internal PEFC training to PEFC International. 

Your internal training will then be assessed against the PEFC International TRP requirements for CBs (currently under development). Once we have positively verified the process description and training content, we award the PEFC recognition.

During the training we will provide you with information on these requirements and the PEFC chain of custody related standards.
