As a scheme endorsed by the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC), MTCC is required to revise its certification standards and other relevant technical documents once every five years. The revision ensures that latest development in PEFC requirements, new scientific information, practical experience gained in the field, and expectations as well as aspirations of society towards sustainable forest management are considered by the national schemes and implemented as part of PEFC’s commitment to continuous improvement.
Following the approval by the 83rd Meeting of the Board of Trustees, MTCC has submitted its revised standards and other relevant MTCS documentation to PEFC for re-endorsement on 1 July 2020.
To ensure transparency and accountability in the endorsement process, PEFC is now seeking feedback from stakeholders on the revised MTCS.
