Revised documents A revised draft version of the PEFC Norway Technical Documentation is now available. There are not any major changes, but the documents have now index and the chapters are numbered. The documents will be endorsed by the PEFC Norway Council Mid October 2009.
Public consultation PEFC Norway technical document As part of the preparation for re-endorsement of the PEFC Norway certification scheme the first draft of the main documents are open for public consultation.
The PEFC Norway Technical Document with eight Annexes does not represent any changes of the PEFC Norway forest management or chain of custody certification. The rules and requirements, however, are structured in a new way, in order to make the documentation clearer and more accessible. For some parts, there are codifications of non-documented procedures.The documentation is structured according to the new PEFC requirements for document structure.
In the document, 1st September 2009 is indicated as a possible day of adoption of the documents. This is only an indicative date, but we would like comments sent to the PEFC Norway secretariat before 24th August 2009.

Nominasjoner til regelendring
PEFC International skal revidere to dokumenter som er grunnleggende for skogsertifiseringen. Det ene dokumentet gjelder globale kriterier for bærekraftig skogbruk, og det andre gjelder regler for hvordan skogstandarder skal lages på nasjonalt nivå. Dokumentene vil senre komme på høring, men PEFC International ønsker å trekke med flere eksperter i revisjonen. Alle interesserte oppfordres derfor til å nominere kandidater til å delta i prosessen.
