PEFC chain of custody initial training: UK
Auditors, reviewers and certification decision makers are invited to register for an online PEFC recognized chain of custody initial training 27 January and 5 February 2021.
Attending a PEFC recognized chain of custody initial training is a pre-requisite for any auditor, reviewer or certification decision maker wishing to issue certification against the 2020 PEFC chain of custody related standards, as required by PEFC ST 2003.
Issuing certification against the 2020 standards is only possible after the completion of either initial or refresher training, and once you are accredited against the 2020 versions of the standards.
To register for the training, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. The registration deadline is 20 January.
The training takes place 9:00 – 17:00 GMT on 27 January and 5 February. It will be held online using Zoom.
The training will provide an introduction to the revised 2020 PEFC Chain of Custody standard, focusing on the changes to the input-output process, the PEFC Due Diligence System (DDS), the chain of custody methods and multi-site certification. It will also cover changes to the 2020 PEFC Trademarks standard and 2020 Certification Body Requirements standard.
Before the training, participants are expected to read the 2020 versions of the PEFC standards, along with the summary of changes. These can all be found on our website. Participants will also be provided with case studies in advance of the training, and will need to provide their answers to the technical expert.
The training will be given by Alun Watkins, PEFC International Technical Expert and National Secretary of PEFC UK.
To register for the training, please email email@example.com. The participation fee for the initial training is £300, and needs to be paid before participating in the training. Please register by 20 January.
The training will be held in English.
Following the training, participants will have three weeks to complete the online knowledge test. Participants that pass this test will receive a PEFC recognised chain of custody training certificate within two weeks. Successful participants will also be added to the PEFC register of trained auditors, reviewers and certification decision makers.
