Derogation on Reducing the Labelling Threshold for FSC Mix Percentage Products Now Available

FSC has published this derogation due the outbreak of the COVID-19.

It provides measures to temporarily reduce the labelling threshold for FSC Mix Percentage products in the timber, furniture, and construction industries.

Organizations in these industries that use the FSC Mix label on their products may exceptionally reduce the percentage of FSC material in items for a limited period of time. The FSC Mix percentage can go down to 51% under certain conditions. The derogation took effect on May 4, 2020 and is valid until October 31, 2020.
