Philippines Launches FSC Interim National Standard

This interim national standard will become effective on 01 December 2020.

FSC approved the interim national standard (INS) of Philippines on 16 March 2020. It applies to all types of organizations – including small and low-intensity managed forests (SLIMF) – working in plantations only. The INS does not apply to non-timber forest products.

The INS is based on the FSC Principles and Criteria (V5-2) and the international generic indicators. Additionally, local stakeholders and other participants were consulted during the process.

The organization SGS South Africa (Pty) Ltd was in charge of the adaptation process. The INS for Philippines (English version) can be consulted in the FSC Document Centre.

Please contact the FSC team working on forest management by email forestmanagement@fsc.org for feedback regarding the new standard.
