Proposal of CoC change

18.06.2009

PEFC International has received a comprehensive comment to the draft revision of the PEFC Chain-of-custody standard from Building and Wood Workers’ International (BWI). PEFC sends out the proposal in addition to the previous documents for public consultation.

As the enquiry draft of the new PEFC chain-of-custody standard has already been made available for public consultation, PEFC now invites stakeholders to comment on the BWI proposal.

The BWI proposal concerns specifically social and labour requirements in the whole value chain. The proposal will imply a considerable enlargement of the present scope of chain-of-custody certification. The proposal will include elements outside the scope of forest management certification and verification of the raw material flow in the value chain.
