The FSC national standard for Vietnam is a comprehensive tool to manage forests in a sustainable way and promote responsible wood production.

The national standard could contribute to the strengthening of the Vietnamese forestry sector. By applying this new NFSS, FSC certificate holders could get greater access to global markets. It should also help them prove their positive impacts on the environment and social development.

This standard applies to all forest operations seeking FSC certification within Vietnam. It covers natural forests, plantations and small and low-intensity managed forests.

The Vietnamese NFSS can be consulted in the FSC Document Center. Please check the FSC Asia Pacific blog for more information.

Please contact FSC Vietnam Country Manager, Thi Que Anh Vu, via email vu.queanh@fsc.org for any queries regarding the new standard.
