PEFC Luxembourg and the Slovak Forest Certification Association have revised their forest certification schemes in line with PEFC's requirements of five-yearly revisions of national systems and submitted their application for re-assessment by PEFC.

As part of the process, PEFC seeks comments and feedback from all interested parties to ensure full compliance of the national schemes with PEFC's Sustainability Benchmark during a 60 day global public consultation.

"We require stakeholder engagement throughout the standards development and endorsement processes at both national and international levels", says Ben Gunneberg, PEFC Secretary General. "In-depth involvement of all interested parties ensures that a scheme reflects the best practices and incorporates available knowledge and expertise, and is aligned with their expectations and needs."

PEFC is the only global forest certification scheme that requires and implements regular revisions of all national certification systems, and that subjects all standards to independent evaluations. All comments received during the global public consultation will provide valuable information for the third-party assessor in determining whether the respective national system is in compliance with international requirements.

Please submit your comments directly to the assessor at latest by 31st March 2010.
