The FSC Secretariat on behalf of the FSC Board of Directors held elections for six seats of the FSC International Board of Directors.

The call for nominations was issued by the FSC Secretariat in December 2016. The voting period opened from 9 June to 31 August 2017. However, since the election did not reach the required quorum, the deadline was extended to 8 September.

On 13 September 2017, the electoral committee met in Bonn, Germany, to register and count the votes. Minutes of the proceedings were documented by an independent lawyer.
