Delineating Intact Forest Landscapes Guidance Document Available

Released May 25, 2017

With the release of FSC’s Advice Note related to the implementation of Motion 65 (Jan. 1, 2017), Certificate Holders are required to demonstrate that temporary protection measures are in place until National Forest Stewardship Standards (NFSS) are developed in countries with Intact Forest Landscapes (IFLs).

To assist in meeting the requirements of the Advice Note, FSC Canada has prepared interim guidance that can be used by Certificate Holders in Canada to identify and delineate IFLs – the first step in ensuring the effective implementation of the Advice Note.

This interim guidance can be used immediately, and will eventually be replaced by indicators and final guidance in Canada’s NFSS.

Find the document under Tools and Resources on our Forest Management Standard Revision page.
