Regional standards for British Columbia nearing completion

The public comment period for the second draft of the British Columbia regional standards was recently completed, leaving only the completion of the final draft and endorsement by FSC International before the province has its own set of internationally recognized standards for responsible forestry.

 Per the statutes governing standards development in the FSC system, the British Columbia Regional Working Group will consider all comments received during the public comment period for incorporation into the final standards draft. The final version of the FSC Regional Standards for responsible forestry in British Columbia will have had input from experts and representatives from a wide range of forest sectors including industry, ENGO's, law, labor, economics, and First Nations.
