Italian forest certification system submitted for endorsement

15 June 2023 PEFC system news

The Italian Forest Certification System has been submitted to PEFC for assessment. The public consultation, which is your chance to give your feedback on this revised system, will run from 26 June to 24 August 2023.

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

The revised Italian Forest Certification System also includes new a Trees Outside Forests (TOF) standard. TOF certification was one of the innovative developments of the 2018 PEFC Sustainable Forest Management standard. 

To provide you with additional information about this revised national system, we are holding a webinar on 26 June, at 10:00 CEST. The webinar is free to attend, and everyone is welcome.

The endorsement process

After revising the national system in line with PEFC requirements, PEFC Italy submitted the revised system to PEFC for endorsement. 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.

Join us on 26 June to find out more.
