PEFC Standards Revision

Requirements for Certification Bodies conducting PEFC Chain of Custody certification

What's the standard about?

This standard defines the requirements for certification bodies carrying out PEFC Chain of Custody certification.

Who's revising the standard?

Working Group 5  is responsible for the revision of this standard. WG 5 will build consensus on the revised standard, relying on the involvement of active and committed individuals from different interest groups.

To ensure that no single concerned interest can dominate the process, the WG has balanced representation of interested stakeholders, including geographical representation, and a consensus-driven decision making process.

What's the latest news?

The call for nominations for WG 5 is closed. We are evaluating all available nominations and will come back to the nominees with further information.
