The Timber Procurement Assessment Committee (TPAC) will be reassessing FSC International to the Dutch procurement criteria for timber (TPAS). TPAC invites stakeholders to its forum to share their knowledge on and experience with FSC. Comments will be appreciated and will contribute to a robust reassessment process. The stakeholder forum will be open from 12 July until 6 September 2021.
At the end of the assessment procedure TPAC will report back on how the forum comments have been taken into account. This forum report will be published on the TPAC website.
TPAC assesses timber certification systems and advises the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management (I&W) on the outcome. The objective of the Committee is to facilitate the government’s commitment to procure sustainable timber.
