Forest Stewardship CouncilĀ® Certification Public Review and Comments

July 25, 2019

Taan Forest LP (Taan) is certified under the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) BC-Regional Forest Management Standard (FSC Trademark License: FSC® C104355).

As part of the FSC® commitments, Taan has recently completed the 2018 Annual Monitoring Report and made some minor changes to the FSC® Management Plan to incorporate feedback from the Council of the Haida Nation.

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 Value Forest Assessment and FSC Controlled Wood Risk Assessment (as part of our Chain of Custody Certification). There have not been any changes made to these documents, but they are available for review and comment by request.
