The Australian National Risk Assessments for Sourcing Controlled Wood

Organisations seeking to source controlled wood from Australia must use the Australian National Risk Assessment to ensure conformance with standard FSC-STD-40-005 V3-1 Requirements for Sourcing FSC Controlled Wood.

The use of the FSC approved High Conservation Values Evaluation Framework is mandatory when assessing risk against Controlled Wood Category 3 (High Conservation Values) in Australia.
