Derogation on the Use of Virgin Fibre in FSC Recycled Products Now Available

Due to additional demands for FSC Recycled products because of the COVID-19 pandemic, FSC has issued a derogation about using virgin fibre in these products.

There is an increased demand for tissue and hygiene products on account of the COVID-19 pandemic situation. A significant amount of these products contains recycled paper using the FSC Mix and FSC Recycled labels. Companies are now beginning to see a shortage of recycled fibre to use in these products due to supply constraints and travel restrictions in many areas of the world arising out of the COVID-19 situation. FSC has issued  a derogation (FSC-DER-2020-003)  describing how companies can use virgin fibre for tissue and hygiene products carrying the FSC Recycled label.
