Seeking your comments on an amendment to AS4707

Responsible Wood is seeking your comments on a proposed amendment to AS4707:2014.  AS4707 is the Australian adoption of the PEFC International Chain of Custody Standard. Source: Timberbiz

In the adoption process, the word “Country” in the PEFC document was translated as “State” in AS4707 (Appendix 2-Clause 2.6).

This has created an unintended State based restriction than can impact on organisations operating across State boundaries.

The purpose of the amendment is to realign AS4707 with the PEFC International Chain of Custody Standard and remove the unintended and unworkable State restriction.
