FSC took this decision to address requests from stakeholders, who were having difficulties in giving their feedback 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 receive comments from all around the world.

The consultation can be accessed through the FSC Consultation Platform.

For more information on the first draft and the public consultation, please contact Jiwon Sung, FSC Policy Officer (Forest Management and Ecosystem Services), at j.sung@fsc.org.
