Abstract

Certification of sustainable forest management has evolved and accelerated with demand for certified forest products (CFPs) from public procurement policies and green building initiatives. The UNECE Timber Committee originally called certification a marketing tool and considered it to be a means of communication within the wood chain, as well as between the forest sector and a wider public. This chapter highlights the developments in CFPs. It differs from certification chapters of previous years in part because within the UNECE region there are now only two major international systems; thus, in the current chapter there is less emphasis on certification systems.

This chapter provides the backdrop for the discussion of certification-related developments at the annual Timber Committee Market Discussions, to be held on 13-14 October 2009. Country market statements will be another basis for the Discussions, as countries are requested to report on certification and public-procurement policy developments.
