In order to enhance the legality and transparency of timber materials from plantations in Vietnam, the Vietnam Forest Certification Office has developed a toolkit on implementing Due Dilligence System (DDS) according to the PEFC ST 2002:2020. This toolkit has been developed with the support of national and international experts to provide detailed steps for DDS implementation. The draft toolkit is currently available in English and will be translated into Vietnamese after extensive consultation.
To complete this Toolkit, VFCO publishes the draft version on the VFCS website for relevant experts and organizations’ comments. All comments and recommendations should be sent to the mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. The public consultation period will end on February 10, 2023. Documentation can be downloaded here.
