Programme for Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC)

PEFC © Planet Ark

The Programme for Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) is an international certification scheme that provides endorsement of individual national forest certification schemes, such as the AFCS. Forest managers, processors and merchants certified under the AS 4707 (AFS Chain of Custody Standard) can use the PEFC logo in addition to the AFS.

Like AFCS, this scheme has a number of limitations and Planet Ark believes it should be improved to ensure better forest protection and consumer confidence.
