Introduction to the German national system

System introduction webinar

PEFC Germany submitted their national forest certification system to PEFC for re-endorsement earlier this month. The public consultation, which is your chance to give your feedback on this revised system, will run from 19 April to 18 June 2021.

PEFC Germany revised the country’s national forest certification system following the entry into force of the revised 2018 PEFC Sustainable Forest Management standard.

To provide you with additional information about this revised national system, we held a webinar on 19 April, at 10:00 CEST. Watch the recording:

The endorsement process

After revising the national system in line with PEFC requirements, PEFC Germany submitted the revised system to PEFC for endorsement. The national system is now undergoing the PEFC assessment process, carried out by an independent PEFC Registered Assessor. It must pass this process and be approved by the PEFC General Assembly before it can achieve endorsement.

An important aspect of the assessment process is the public consultation. Over the sixty-day consultation, stakeholders from around the world can give their comments and provide feedback on any aspect of the system. The Registered Assessor will use the information received from this consultation in their assessment of the system.

Take part in the consultation and give your feedback.
