Standard Setting (PEFC ST 1001:2017)

This standard describes PEFC’s requirements for standardising bodies during their development, review and revision of standards for forest management and system-specific chain of custody standards relating to forest products.

It is based on ISO/IEC Guide 59 and Guide 2. In addition, the ISEAL Code of Good Practice for Setting Social and Environmental Standards was taken into consideration.

PEFC ST 1001:2017 entered into force on 15 November 2017, replacing PEFC ST 1001:2010.
