PEFC chain of custody refresher training: Australia
Experienced PEFC chain of custody auditors, reviewers and certification decision makers are invited to register for an online PEFC recognized chain of custody refresher training on 6 and 7 October.
This refresher training is designed for qualified PEFC auditors, reviewers or certification decision makers that wish 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.
You can register for the training here.
The training takes place 6 and 7 October, 10:00 – 14:30 AEST (Australian Eastern Standard Time) on Zoom.
The training will provide an introduction to the revised 2020 PEFC Chain of Custody standard, focusing on the changes to the input-output process, the PEFC Due Diligence System (DDS), the chain of custody methods and multi-site certification. It will also cover changes to the 2020 PEFC Trademarks standard and 2020 Certification Body Requirements standard.
Before the training, participants are expected to read the 2020 versions of the PEFC standards, along with the summary of changes. These can all be found on our website. Participants will also be provided with case studies in advance of the training, and will need to provide their answers to the technical expert.
The training will be given by Simon Dorries, PEFC International Technical Expert and National Secretary of Responsible Wood, our national member for Australia.
The participation fee for the refresher training is 500 AUD per person, excluding VAT. The fee must be paid before the training or participation will not be allowed.
The training will be held in English.

Following the training, participants will have three weeks to complete an online knowledge test. Participants that pass this test will receive a PEFC recognised chain of custody training certificate within two weeks. Successful participants will also be added to the PEFC register of trained auditors, reviewers and certification decision makers.
