PEFC national forestry certification standards for Romania have been endorsed by PEFC International on the 04’th of June, 2018!
PEFC is the world’s largest forest certification system.
The National Standards for Romania were developed from 2014 to 2017 through a project that benefited from funding from the Swiss-Romanian Cooperation Programme, being implemented by a consortium consisting of Asociatia Romontana, Universitatea ”Stefan cel Mare”, Suceava (Forestry Faculty), Open Fields Foundation, Nostra Silva Federation and Schweizerische Arbeitsgemeinschaft für die Berggebiete SAB (Swiss Centre for Mountain Regions). More details about the project can be found here https://romontana.org/…/intarirea-capacitatii-asociatiilor…/
PEFC Romania is an organisation created following this project and will operate as a National Governing Body for implementing this forest certification system.
Special thanks to Embassy of Switzerland in Romania / Ambasada Elveției în România for all the confidence and support granted!
