Portuguese forest certification system submitted for assessment
24 June 2022 PEFC system news
The Portuguese 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 5 July to 3 September 2022.
PEFC Portugal 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, we are holding a webinar on 5 July, 11:00 CEST. The webinar is open to everyone and is free to join.
The endorsement process
The Portuguese system was submitted to PEFC after being revised in line with PEFC requirements. The national system is now undergoing the PEFC assessment process, carried out by an independent PEFC Registered Assessor. It must pass this assessment to maintain its PEFC 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.
