COVID-19 has presented FSC with many challenges, while maintaining FSC’s mission to take care of the world’s forests

Press Release

COVID-19 has presented FSC with many challenges, the most important of which is to protect the health of certificate holders and auditors at the frontline of our work, while maintaining FSC’s mission to take care of the world’s forests.

Combining these two vital components – protection of staff and forests – with the willingness to support global measures to reduce the spread of the virus, has meant FSC has had to make difficult decisions quickly, primarily related to auditing of certified forests and chains of custody, and addressing supply chain constraints.  

As a result, FSC issued several derogations and interpretations related to COVID-19. These derogations and interpretations have been published in a single volume, together with related frequently asked questions. The document is available for download here.
