Public consultations

Give your comments and provide feedback on any aspect of national forest certification systems under assessment.

Public consultations

Global public consultations are an integral part of the assessment process of national forest certification systems. Over the sixty day consultation, stakeholders from around the world can give their comments and provide feedback on any aspect of the system. 

We also hold global public consultations as part of the development process of our international standards - see if there are any technical public consultations running.

To provide you with additional information, we organize a webinar during the consultation period of every national system. The webinar introduces the system and highlights the main aspects (or introduced changes in the case of revised systems). You can find recordings of the recent webinars on our YouTube channel.

You can provide feedback on any system with an ongoing consultation.
