Norwegian forest certification system submitted for assessment
19 September 2022 PEFC system news
The Norwegian 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 September to 24 November 2022.
PEFC Norway revised the country’s national forest certification system following the entry into force of the revised 2018 PEFC Sustainable Forest Management standard.
To provide you with additional information about this revised national system, we are holding a webinar on 26 September at 10:00 CEST.
The endorsement process
After revising the national system in line with PEFC requirements, PEFC Norway 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 September to find out more.
