WHAT IS THE SCOPE OF THE NATIONAL FOREST MANAGEMENT AND CHAIN OF CUSTODY CERTIFICATION SYSTEM?
- The proposed national forest management standard and certification scheme will cover forest management on all land tenures where forest management for commercial purposes is permitted by law.
- It is intended that certification will be available to both individual forest management organizations and potential group schemes involving multiple forest management entities.
- It is also envisaged that certification will cover non-timber forest products as well as timber produce.
- The certification scheme will also facilitate chain of custody certification for entities purchasing, processing and/or trading in forest products.
