FSC Message Regarding COVID-19
FSC Canada hopes that you and your family are healthy and safe during these challenging times. We would like to take this opportunity to update you on how FSC Canada is responding to the challenges presented to us by the pandemic.
Advice Regarding Audits
Given increasing travel restrictions due to COVID-19, FSC International has issued a derogation that allows certification bodies unable to conduct on-site audits to either postpone the audit or replace it with desk audits.
FSC International has also issued an interpretation regarding audits for multi-site certificates.
Reaching FSC Staff
We are grateful that our team is safely re-positioned at our respective homes and rising to the challenge of delivering on our mission in a rapidly changing environment. You can find contact information for staff on our website or can send general inquiries to info at ca.fsc point org
We are looking forward to continuing to work with you under these new circumstances and ensuring you enjoy the benefits of being certified by the world’s most trusted forest certification scheme, and to help you with whatever FSC-related challenges you may face.
