Netherlands NFSS

The National Forest Stewardship Standard (NFSS) of The Kingdom of The Netherlands FSC-STD-NLD-02-2018 EN has gone through an unscheduled partial revision. The changes in this partially revised version FSC-STD-NLD-02.1-2021 EN affect some requirements for forest management certification. The changes include the following:

  • Adding a new indicator (6.9.2) and a note that further restricts the conditions for forest conversion   
  • Updating existing indicator 10.2.2 and adding new indicator 10.2.4, which expands the list of options for the use of plant material for forest restoration.
  • Adding a glossary definition of small-scale planting (linked to the changes in indicators of Criterion 10.2 outlined above).
  • Editorial changes to remove typos and inconsistencies

For any queries on the NFSS of The Kingdom of The Netherlands, please contact FSC Netherlands at a.alkema@fsc.nl.

The NFSS for Netherlands (English version) can be consulted in the FSC Document Centre.

A translated (into Dutch) version will be available on the FSC Netherlands’ website in due course. Visit FSC Netherlands’ newsroom for more related news.
