FSC took this decision to address requests from stakeholders. These stakeholders found it difficult to provide feedbacks within the initial deadline due to the COVID 19 outbreak. We hope this deadline extension will help many stakeholders to send their feedback on the draft as we value opportunities to get feedback from all around the world.

The consultation can be accessed through the FSC Consultation Platform.

The FSC working group managing the revision of the FSC Conversion Remedy Procedure will discuss and – if needed – incorporate feedback from the first consultation into the second draft Conversion Remedy Procedure. The consultation on this second draft is planned for winter 2020. 

For more information on the policy on conversion and the public consultation, please contact Yan Li, FSC Policy Manager, at y.li@fsc.org
