The development process

Our international standards and guides go through a detailed and rigorous development process before they can be approved and implemented. This process is consensus driven, open and transparent, and involves all the relevant stakeholders.

The Working Groups

The standards development process is driven by multi-stakeholder Working Groups. The WGs build consensus on the respective technical documentation, relying on the involvement of active and committed individuals from different interest groups.

Get involved

From giving feedback through an online public consultation, to helping drive the development of a standard by joining a working group, you can help us to ensure our PEFC standards meet your expectations.
