South Africa is in the process of developing a South African National Forestry Certification standard as part of the South African Forestry Assurance Scheme (SAFAS), which will seek endorsement by the Programme for Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC).  This standard is based on the National Principles, Criteria, Indicators and Standards Framework (PCI&S).

Interested parties are invited to comment on the second draft the SAFAS certification standard which is downloadable from the link below.
