Current Consultations

Global public consultations are an integral part of PEFC's processes. We invite feedback on enquiry drafts of all our technical documentation during a sixty day consultation. A sixty day global public consultation also applies to all assessments of national certification systems.

Enquiry drafts listed below are currently subject to global public consultation as part of the documentation development requirements process. All interested stakeholders are invited to submit comments directly to PEFC.

There are currently no technical consultations.

Current Assessments of National Certification Systems

The following systems are currently under assessment by PEFC. Part of this assessment consists of a sixty day global public consultation during which period all interested stakeholders are invited to submit comments directly to PEFC.
