The consultation will be open until 31 May 2018.

FSC risk assessments are used to determine the risk of an organization obtaining material from unacceptable sources when sourcing controlled wood.

Currently, risk assessments for Controlled Wood Category 4 are based on legal analysis alone. To fill the resulting information gap, we ask that stakeholders provide information regarding forest conversion data.

Stakeholder feedback received during the consultation period will be used to finalize these risk assessments.

Stakeholders are asked to submit feedback to Tatjana Stutzkowsky ( by 31 May 2018.

All information – risk assessments and comment forms – may be found here on 01 May 2018.
