A review of forest certification in Australia (Research Report)
Three forestry certification standards are currently operational in Australia, covering two overall schemes: the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) - accredited Woodmark and SmartWood standards and the Australian Forestry Standard (AFS).
This report shows that while there are points of difference, there are also similarities. Organisations that have undertaken the cerification process have also found they have had to make changes to the way they operate and/or manage their forests.
