The revision process of the NFSS for Sweden started in 2012. It focused mainly on:

  1. developing a more accessible and auditable standard,
  2. adapting the standard to Version 5 of the FSC Principles and Criteria, and
  3. addressing the viewpoints of various FSC stakeholders.

A chamber-balanced standard development group developed the NFSS. It used a multi-stakeholder process, including two public consultations that took place in 2016 and 2018.

The NFSS for Sweden can be accessed through the FSC Document Centre.
