FSC Pesticides Policy (2005)
FSC's current policy on pesticides (FSC-POL-30-601 Chemical Pesticides in Certified Forests) was approved by the FSC Board of Directors in July 2002. The policy is designed to implement the relevant requirements of the FSC Principles and Criteria for Forest Stewardship and has three main elements:The identification and avoidance of highly hazardous1 pesticides; promotion of ‘non-chemical’ methods of pest management as an element of an integrated pest and vegetation management strategy; appropriate use of the pesticides that are used.
This FSC discussion paper proposes modifications
to FSC’s current policy, in order to provide clear, definitive guidance
on the implementation of the FSC Principles and Criteria, following the
approach established by the FSC Board of Directors in May 2002.
