    e.g. UK, Finland, Malaysia, Australia, US, Canada, Norway, Sweden, Brazil + int. org.

  • more than 100 pages with detailed comments

    • many constructive proposals for technical improvements

    • some good food for thought, e.g.:do we at all NEED this kind of work (national criteria setting); concern about uncertified suppliers,

    • strong calls for more cautious approaches, e.g. on social + extent

    • strong calls for more rigorious approaches, e.g. on social + extent

      (All comments available at full length at the internet)


Next steps
Next steps

  • Consider all comments carefully

  • Keen to engage in broader stakeholder discussion, e.g. on social aspects and/or extent of ressource

  • Keen to contribute to harmonisation efforts

  • However, also keen to move on and improve guidance to buyers -as said in the 9-point-plan

  • Keen to address alternative means for doc. in a practical, yet ambitious way (e.g. underpin FLEGT)

    • we have some guidance already (tropical timber guidelines)

    • CPET has some (very long!) guidance

    • Seminar in Copenhagen March 2007

    • Timber tracking project in Russia finalised

    • Look into existing VLO/VLC tools and systems

    • Address the missing link from forest to buyer

    • Non controversial areas and countries?
