Bulgarian Forest Certification System submitted for assessment

22 May 2024 PEFC system news

The Bulgarian Forest Certification System, the latest member of the Balkan Regional System, has been submitted to PEFC for assessment. The public consultation, which is your chance to give your feedback on this revised system, will run from 28 May to 27 July 2024.

The Council for Sustainable Forest Management and Certification in Bulgaria (CSFMCB) revised the country’s national forest certification system to ensure its forest management standard is up-to-date and continues to meet stakeholder demands and expectations.

This national system also joins Bosnia and Herzegovina, North Macedonia, and Slovenia under the Balkan Regional System.

Find out more about the Bulgarian national system.

To provide you with additional information about this revised system, we are holding a webinar on 28 May 2024 at 9:00 CET.

The assessment process

After revising the national system in line with PEFC requirements, CSFMCB 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.
