FSC Guidelines on Free, Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC) ready


The official first version of the FSC Guidelines on Free, Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC) is ready.
This document represents over a year’s work and the direct contributions of more than 50 people from around the World. This is the first version of guidance on a complex topic. We are planning to pilot this methodology over the next year and then revise the guidance based on practical lessons learnt in the field. The document is available on the FSC website here.

Please send to Vanessa Linforth, FSC Social Policy Manager (v.linforth@fsc.org), any comments on the application of this guidance or requests for any further information.
