The public consultation on the draft revised IGIs is open until 11 May 2022. The webinar is an opportunity to learn more about the proposed amendments to four IGIs and the addition of a new glossary term through a ‘small changes’ process. The ‘small changes’ process, mandated by the FSC Board of Directors at their 86th Meeting, aims to improve aspects of gender inclusiveness and the glossary of terms by revising four International Generic Indicators (IGIs) in the FSC-STD-60-004 V2-0 EN. For this purpose, an internal technical working group (I-TWG) was appointed in FSC’s Performance and Standards Unit (PSU) in October 2021 to propose draft revised IGI (1.6.4, 4.6.4, 2.2.3 and 2.2.5) and to define a new glossary term. More information about the process can be found here.

Two sessions will be held, with translation to Spanish:
