Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About the Case

  1. Why did the FSC Board of Directors not take a decision on the Korindo case at their meeting in August 2018?

    After in depth discussions, the FSC Board (BoD) concluded that further clarifications and information were needed - in relation to particular points - prior for the BoD to be able to come to a decision on the case.

    For that reason it was decided that an additional expert analysis to clarify these points must be conducted, and that the decision on the case shall be postponed until the results of this additional analysis are available.

  2. Why is an additional analysis required prior for a decision on the case to be taken?

    This additional analysis will enable the BoD to take a fair and comprehensive decision on the case based on solid grounds and complete information.

    This is in line with the principles of fairness and impartiality which the FSC Dispute Resolution is based on.
