FSC has made the second draft of its reviewed standard for forest management groups (FSC-STD-30-005) available for public consultation from 21 May until 21 June 2020.

Since the beginning of the year, the technical working group in charge of the revision has been analyzing the feedback received during the first public consultation. The main feedback addressed in this second draft standard includes:
- simplifying the language and adding information boxes;
- simplifying the internal monitoring methodology;
- complementing the chain of custody requirements;
- including forestry contractors as an option in Part III of the standard.
