Public Consultation Webinar - Certification Body Requirements

Public Consultation Webinar - Certification Body Requirements


These online webinars provided information about the planned changes for the revised requirements for certification bodies operating PEFC Chain of Custody.

As we continue to make our standards more robust, this revision will require that auditors have specific experience on PEFC Chain of Custody audits and includes requirements for certification decision makers. 

The standard will also reflect our commitment towards gender responsive standards, ensuring that certification bodies consider gender equity within the personnel involved in the certification activities and the audit team. 

We also look to modernize the certification procedures, by considering the use of technology in remote auditing for client organizations without physical handling of finished and labelled products.
