High Conservation Values Framework

Australian National Risk Assessment and High Conservation Values Framework

The High Conservation Values Framework is to be used in the context of implementing the Controlled Wood Standard. 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.

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.
