FSC’s Performance and Standards Unit has recently initiated the process to revise the procedures that govern the development and content of all FSC risk assessments.

Unfortunately, we have not received enough applications from the environmental and social chambers to start the revision process. Therefore, we are reopening the application window for this process. All FSC members and interested experts on the topic of risk assessment are welcome to apply.

This revision process is crucial, as FSC risk assessments determine how certificate holders mitigate the social and environmental risks in supply chains containing non-certified material in addition to determining the risks present in at least 60 countries around the world. Any changes to the FSC risk assessment procedures will have lasting impacts.

The working group requirements and responsibilities, expected time commitment, and some proposed work inputs and outputs can be found by clicking here.

The application form can be downloaded by clicking here.

This application period closes on 20 June 2021.
