FSC Australia response to Forestry Tasmania audit result
Australia 1 March 2016: An independent audit of Forestry Tasmania against the FSC’s Forest Management standards by SCS Global services has been publicly released. The report’s release follows more than twelve months of additional evidence collection and evaluation by the independent auditor and Forestry Tasmania.
The audit identified major areas for improvement in forest management practices in order to achieve the FSC’s top-flight certification. The FSC’s green tree ‘tick’ logo has become the most highly sought after seal of approval for manufacturers and forest managers in Australia. The logo can’t be bought and must be earned through independent auditing against FSC standards.
