This version of the Alternative Natural Fibers (ANF) standard (Draft 1_Version 3) is the first draft to be released for public consultation. The consultation period runs from January 17 through March 17, 2014.
We encourage all stakeholders to participate in this consultation. All comments will be carefully reviewed and considered. The emerging field of ANF crop management involves an array of complex environmental, social and economic issues, as well as a steep learning curve. We are counting on you—the stakeholders most likely to benefit from and be impacted by an ANF standard—to provide us with your expertise so that the standard we develop achieves its intended goals and provides you with value.
If you have any questions, please contact Karen Steer, the ANF standard development project manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you, in advance, for participating in this important effort.
