Forest Stewardship Council® Certification Public Engagement

October 5, 2020

Taan Forest LP (Taan) is certified under the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) BC-Regional Forest Management Standard and is in the process of transitioning to the new FSC Canada Standard (FSC Trademark License: FSC® C104355).

As part of the FSC commitments, Taan has recently completed the 2019 Annual Monitoring Report and has made some changes to the FSC Management Plan to address the new standard requirements.

The Monitoring Report contains a description of the changes made under the section titled “Introduction”. Revised text is shown in purple font to help facilitate review of the changes. A separate Executive Summary Report has also been prepared to facilitate easier review.

Taan also maintains a High Conservation Values (HCV) Assessment and Environmental Values Assessment. The HCV and Environmental Assessment have also undergone expert review as required by the new standard. The Assessment Reports and the Expert Review reports are available for review.

Taan also maintains a fiber sourcing Due Diligence System under our Chain of Custody, the Summary that is available for review on the FSC Database.
