CSA—Canadian Standards Association (Withdrawn)

Standards for Forest Management:

PEFC Canada now has ownership of the technical content of the withdrawn Canadian Forest Management Standard (CSA Z809) formerly owned and administered by CSA Group.  Work is underway with the PEFC Canada Technical Committee to develop a new standard, based off withdrawn CSA Z809, with a goal to release the PEFC International endorsed standard in 2024.  The public review and comment period is open until June 5, 2023.  A copy of the draft standard can be downloaded at and comments can be provided online.

CSA:Z809 is available on a time-limited interim basis to support certification continuity until PEFC Canada publishes their standard.
