The new version of FSC-STD-30-010 Controlled Forest Management Standard V3-0 is now published on 01 January 2024 with major changes in the structure and the contents of the standard. This standard specifies basic requirements applicable at the forest management level for organizations to demonstrate that the materials produced and supplied from those management units conform to the requirements specified in the 5 categories of this standard. This new version replaces Controlled Wood Standard for Forest Management Enterprises V2-0. The revision of the standard FSC-STD-30-010 was triggered by the Strategy for FSC Mix products and Controlled Wood.
