The Suriname INS can be used for the certification of rough wood from all types of organizations working in all types of forest, including small and low-intensity managed forests (SLIMF).

The INS is based on the FSC Principles and Criteria (V5-2) and the international generic indicators (IGIs). Preferred by Nature (the former NEPCon) performed the adaptation process and stakeholder consultation. FSC approved the INS on 13 October 2020.

The INS of Suriname (English version) can be viewed in the FSC Document Center here. Please contact the FSC team working on forest management by email at for any questions.
