The Brazilian Forest Certification System has been submitted to PEFC for assessment. The public consultation will run from 18 July to 15 September 2022.
PEFC Brazil revised the country’s national forest certification system following the entry into force of the revised 2018 PEFC Sustainable Forest Management standard. 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.
PEFC, the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification, is a leading global alliance of national forest certification systems.
