The Performance and Standard Unit (PSU) of FSC International has just approved 4 interpretations of the FSC National Forest Stewardship Standard of Canada (FSC-STD-CAN-01-2018) related to the caribou indicator. More are expected in the coming weeks.
FSC Canada and its Standard Development Group have worked intensively with PSU and experts, as needed, to develop precise and clear interpretations. The purpose of interpretation is to answer to questions related to the FSC National Forest Stewardship Standard of Canada (FSC-STD-CAN-01-2018) in clarifying the intent of a requirement.
Interpretations are normative and replace any “recommendations” that may have been shared in the past.
The interpretations are available for now in English only and can be found here. The French version will be released soon.
