On 01 January 2022, a new version of  ADVICE-40-004-18 Addressing false FSC claims on products/projects containing material from unacceptable sources and FSC-PRO-10-003 Calculating Financial Penalty/Compensation Fee and Processing Evidence for Blocked Organizations will become effective. 

To support the implementation of these new versions, FSC has also updated the Q&A document on false claims. The document reflects the new content of the advice note and contains more precise language, more examples, and more clarification.

You can find the Q&A on the FSC Chain of Custody certification webpage.
