Introduction to the Swiss national system

System introduction webinar

PEFC Switzerland submitted their national forest certification system to PEFC for re-endorsement in October last year. The public consultation, which is your chance to give your feedback on this revised system, will run from 8 February to 9 April.

In order to provide you with additional information about this revised national system, we held a webinar on 22 February, at 10:00 CET. Watch the recording:

PEFC Switzerland revised the country’s national forest certification system following the entry into force of the revised 2018 PEFC Sustainable Forest Management standard.

After revising the national system in line with PEFC requirements, PEFC Switzerland submitted the revised system to PEFC. The national system is now undergoing the PEFC assessment process, carried out by an independent PEFC Registered Assessor. It must pass this process and be approved by the PEFC General Assembly before it can achieve endorsement.

An important aspect of the assessment process is the public consultation. Over the sixty-day consultation, stakeholders from around the world can give their comments and provide feedback on any aspect of the system. The Registered Assessor will use the information received from this consultation in their assessment of the system.

Take part in the consultation and give your feedback!
