Scope of Consultation

Forest Stewardship Council US (FSC-US) previously developed a Controlled Wood National Risk Assessment (NRA) for the conterminous United States (i.e., all parts of the country except the states of Alaska, Hawaii and the U.S. territories). To address gaps in coverage resulting from the limited assessment area of the Part 1 risk assessment, FSC US is now developing a ‘Part 2’ Controlled Wood National Risk Assessment for the states of Alaska and Hawaii. At this time, we are inviting all interested and affected stakeholders to provide feedback on the first draft of this draft US NRA-Part 2. All parts of the draft document are open for comment during this consultation.

Comments will be accepted through December 23, 2019.

While we welcome all comments, we would particularly like to receive your responses to the specific consultation questions in this survey.

Please contact Amy Clark Eagle, FSC-US Director of Science & Certification (, with any questions regarding the draft US NRA-Part 2 or consultation.

Thank you for your interest and participation!
