Auditor training

Auditors, reviewers, and certification decision makers are invited to register for a PEFC recognized chain of custody initial training on 20-21 July 2023.

Attending a PEFC recognized chain of custody initial training is a pre-requisite for an auditor wishing to issue certification against the 2020 PEFC chain of custody related standards, as required by PEFC ST 2003. 

Issuing certification against the 2020 standards is only possible after the completion of either initial or refresher training and once you are accredited against the 2020 versions of the standards.
