New SFI standards created.
Based on the international scope of forest certification, several provisions were added to address social issues and the management of public lands including public involvement, indigenous peoples, non-timber forest products, traditional forest-related knowledge, and illegal logging. The new standard also adds rigor to audit procedures and strengthens the required qualifications for the independent auditor. More information is available at www.aboutsfb.org.
