This guideline is intended for use by Standard Development Groups in developing, revising and transferring National Forest Stewardship Standards and by Certification Bodies in developing Interim National Standards (former 'CB standards'). Collectively, Standard Development Groups and Certification Bodies are referred to as ‘Standard Developers’.
The objectives of this guideline are to provide a generic framework for Standard Developers to:
- Address Scale, Intensity and Risk (SIR) in developing National and Interim National Standards;
- Clarify that SIR is primarily related to the impact of management activities; and
- Provide an analysis in the SIR Matrix of how SIR applies to each Criterion.
The International Generic Indicator (IGI) working group initiated the process, but the first and the second draft were developed with several stakeholder groups.
The coordinator publishes a synopsis of the valid comments which includes an analysis of the range of stakeholder groups who have submitted comments
