Consultation Summary
Name Public consultation on the revised CSA SFM Program
Description In March 2017 PEFC International received an application from PEFC Canada for the assessment and endorsement of the revised Canadian Standards Association (CSA) Sustainable Forest Management (SFM) Program, inclduing the SFM standard CAN/CSA-Z809-16. CAN/CSA-Z809-16 is the fourth edition of the CSA SFM standard, the second and third editions having been endorsed by PEFC. The standard was developed utilizing CSA’s consensus-based balanced matrix of interests approach by the CSA Technical Committee on Sustainable Forest Management, which also developed the previous three editions. A call for proposals for the selection of an independent consultant conducting the assessment of the revised CSA Program against PEFC sustainability benchmarks for forest certification systems will be sent out shortly, with the deadline for proposals being 7 June 2017. All comments submitted in this public consultation will be considered by the assessor in the evaluation of the scheme.
