Get ready to audit against the 2020 PEFC chain of custody standard – new training dates announced!

18 September 2020 Training announcements

Issuing certification against the 2020 standards requires auditors to complete either an initial or a refresher training. We are therefore pleased to announce two more refresher trainings – register now!

The English-language training will be held by our members for the UK and Ireland, the Portuguese-language training by our member for Portugal. Both trainings will take place virtually.

Both trainings are open to all interested persons globally:

  • English (virtual): 8 October, 08:30 – 16:30 WEST (Western European Summer Time) Register here!
  • Portuguese (virtual): 29 October, 08:00 – 17:00 WET (Western European Time)
    Register here!

The trainings are designed for qualified PEFC auditors, reviewers and certification decision makers that wish to issue certification against the 2020 PEFC chain of custody related standards, as required by PEFC ST 2003.

What to expect

The trainings will provide an introduction to the revised 2020 PEFC Chain of Custody standard, the 2020 PEFC Trademarks standard and the 2020 Certification Body Requirements standard.

Before the training, participants are requested to familiarize themselves with the three standards, along with the summary of changes. These can all be found on our website. Participants will also be provided with case studies to complete in advance of the training.

All participants are required to pass an online knowledge test following the training to receive a PEFC recognised chain of custody training certificate. Successful participants will benefit from being listed in the PEFC register of trained auditors, reviewers and certification decision makers.
