PEFC is conducting a short survey, closing on 22 July.

PEFC believe your opinion and input into what they do is important. They would like to gain a better understanding of what is relevant and important to you in terms of certification to help develop future services.

There are two main sections and one additional section if you have time to complete:

  • Sustainability issues – priorities
  • PEFC certification performance and training requirements
  • Submit or continue with three questions on API (Application Programming Interface for easy analysis of chain of custody certificates status) services and PEFC off-product trademark use.

The survey should only take around 12 minutes, and if you wish your responses can be anonymous.
