FSC and PEFC offering a new certification choice
The two global forest certification organisations are both represented through their respective national organisations, thus providing a choice to the forest owner. The PEFC Irish Forest Certification Standard was the first of the two to be endorsed by PEFC International in December 2011, while the FSC Irish Forest Stewardship Standard was endorsed by FSC International in May 2012.
