New PEFC UK tool for small owners

The UKWAS Steering Group has given a warm welcome to news that PEFC UK has developed a new online certification system which is designed to assist small and medium-sized woodland owners to participate in forest certification.

The new system aims to provide a simple and cost-effective solution to assist the UK’s small and medium-sized private forest owners to become PEFC-certified. It has been developed with assistance from the PEFC International Collaboration Fund, to help increase the UK’s certified forest area and boost the supply of certified material to the UK primary processing sector and its customers.
