The FSC National Forest Stewardship Standard of the People’s Republic of China
The present document was developed in accordance with FSC's normative document for the development and maintenance of Forest Stewardship Standards. The document is applicable to all forest types and operations (including all scales and intensities) seeking FSC certification in the People's Republic of China (not including Hong Kong, Taipei and Macao). Some non-timber forest products are included. Revisions of Forest Stewardship Standards are ongoing, and all existing standards will be transferred to the revised Principles & Criteria version 5-2. All standards are valid until replaced by a new Forest Stewardship Standard.
