FSC National Risk Assessments

January 11, 2019



FSC International continues to roll out the National Risk Assessments for their controlled wood system. The latest have been approved for UK, Uruguay and Russia with all wood harvested in UK rated as low risk of being illegally harvested.


That brings to 26 countries where all the wood harvested in a country is effectively rated as low risk of being illegally harvested – including wood harvested in USA, Canada, France and Germany. Australian harvested wood (for which there is only a draft risk assessment) is rated low risk for illegal harvest except for Sandalwood in West Australia.


The easiest way to find copies of these national risk assessments BTW is to go to FSC International’s Document Center here and search for a country.
