SCS Global Services and other third-party certification bodies joined representatives from WWF China, IKEA, the Chinese Academy of Forestry and the Fujian University of Agroforestry in mid-June for field trials of the new Chinese National Forest Stewardship Standards (NFSS). The certification bodies were calibrating interpretations of the new standard, which will be used to conduct all Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®) evaluations in China once it is approved. See further details at https://blogapac.fsc.org/2018/07/06/fsc-chinas-calibration-meeting-on-its-upcoming-nfss/, and learn more about SCS’ forest management and chain of custody certification services at www.scsglobalservices.com.
