Incorporating a Risk-Based Approach in Forest Management certification
The objective of this procedure is to provide the process steps for conducting and incorporating a risk-based approach in the development or revision of national forest stewardship Standards (NFSS), to assess, identify and designate risk considering the likelihood and impact of nonconformity with indicators of the NFSS.
Success criteria 1.1.4: Following the acceptance of a streamlined and outcome-oriented normative framework approach at the 2017 General Assembly, standards, policies and the schedules of associated processes are reviewed and modified to ensure alignment with strategy.
The principle of “learning by doing” is used to speed up the development of the procedure and guideline. The FSC Board approved a deviation from the FSC-PRO-01-001 omitting public stakeholder consultation during the initial development phase. Stakeholder consultation will be conducted following implementation to improve the new documents where necessary.
