FSC is updating the Lists of Highly Hazardous Pesticides based on the existing criteria, indicators, thresholds and sources through an accelerated revision process as described in FSC-PRO-01-001 The Development and Revision of FSC Requirements.
The FSC-POL-30-001a V1-0 FSC Lists of Highly Hazardous Pesticides includes chemical pesticides that meet the criteria, indicators and thresholds to determine the hazard rating of chemical pesticides set out in Annex 1 of FSC-POL-30-001 V3-0 FSC Pesticides Policy. Such chemical pesticides are therefore considered to be highly hazardous in the FSC system and are classified as prohibited, highly restricted or restricted.
As a key step in this process, FSC will be opening a focused consultation from 1 August to 30 September 2023.
We would like to invite expert and interested actors to participate in this focused consultation. To receive the FSC Consultation Platform link to participate, please contact Francesco Patino, process lead in this update, at
