In March 2022, during the 91st BoD meeting, the FSC Board of Directors approved a full revision of the  documents, based on the review report, and recommended the revision to be done through a technical working group. The four normative documents contain requirements for development and maintenance of Forest Stewardship Standards. The revision process endeavors to update these requirements to make them outcome oriented and user friendly. The documents include:

  • FSC-STD-60-006 V1-2 Process requirements for the development and maintenance of National Forest Stewardship Standards
  • FSC-STD-60-002 V1-0 Structure and Content of National Forest Stewardship Standards
  • FSC-PRO-60-006 V2-0 Development and Transfer of National Forest Stewardship Standards to the FSC Principles and Criteria Version 5-1
  • FSC-PRO-60-007 V1-2 Structure, Content and Development of Interim National Standards

The revision process is starting in June 2022 and is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2024. To become a member of the technical working group, please fill out the application form below and send it to Cynthia Penaloza at by 24 May 2022.

For any questions, please contact the FSC team working on Forest Stewardship Standards by email at

We are looking forward to your applications!
