The FSC Remedy Framework is a set of requirements for remedying past social and environmental harms. The remedy requirements are aligned with the provisions of the Policy for Association, version 2 and the Policy to Address Conversion.
This framework applies to:
Some of the key features of the Remedy Framework are:
Motion 37/2021 and Motion 45/2021, approved by members at the 9th FSC General Assembly, were critical to FSC membership approving changes in the FSC system that enable remedy for past conversion and ensuring a robust Remedy Framework. For more information, click here.
Due to alignment updates required by the new Policy for Association, version 3 and non-eligibility for certification of land converted after 31 December 2020, FSC is developing an edited version of the Remedy Framework (FSC-PRO-01-004). FSC-PRO-01-004 will be applicable on remedy required for unacceptable activities that occur after 1 January 2023 and it will be presented to the FSC Board of Directors for approval in March 2023.
FSC thanks all members and stakeholders for their involvement in numerous consultations and discussions leading to the approved version of the FSC Remedy Framework.
