Zimmfor has developed the following outreach and education material in support of our client base of FSC certificate holders (CH's) who wish to mix FSC certified materials and non-certified materials from areas of specified risk as identified in the FSC United States (US) Controlled Wood National Risk Assessment (NRA).
Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC)
FSC is an independent, non-profit organization with the objective of meeting current needs for forest products while protecting the health of the world's forests for future generations.
FSC's US Controlled Wood NRA provides information on risk for CHs sourcing non-certified materials from the US and establishes minimum legal, environmental, and social requirements for non-certified fiber that can be mixed with FSC certified fiber.
When an organization chooses to source fiber from a specified risk area, the specified risk must be addressed through the implementation of Control Measures. These education and outreach materials form a portion of the mandatory Control Measures required by the FSC US NRA to address or lower the risk of sourcing fiber from areas designated as specified risk.
