FSC Approves FM International Generic Indicators


The Forest Stewardship Council® approved the final draft of the forest management International Generic Indicators (IGIs) in late March. The indicators have been developed over the last two years and are intended to act as a starting point for the development of new national FSC standards or revisions to current standards.

The FSC-US forest management standards will be updated using the IGIs over the next few years. National committees have the ability to adapt or omit IGIs, where there is justification, in order to ensure that they can be properly integrated.

You can read more about the formal announcement on FSC's website or review the final IGIs on the specific IGI website.
