An interpretation is a formal clarification provided by FSC on requirements included in documents of the FSC normative framework.

The interpretations should be taken into account when implementing the chain of custody or controlled wood standards to which each interpretation applies. The following standards are impacted:

  • FSC-STD-20-012 V1-1Standard for Evaluation of FSC Controlled Wood in Forest Management Enterprises (INT-20-012-04 added)
  • FSC-STD-40-005 V3-1 Requirements for Sourcing FSC Controlled Wood (INT-40-005-27 added)

It is recommended that certificate holders and certification bodies read the document for more details.

You can find these Interpretations of the normative framework in the FSC Document Center.
