1.4 Compliance with the law

Projects shall comply with the law.

Certification is not a legal compliance audit.  The certification body will be checking that there is no evidence of non-compliance with relevant legal requirements.

The main legislation relevant to Sustainable Forest Management is set out in the UK Forestry Standard (including the elements of sustainable forest management (Climate Change, Soil, Water, Biodiversity, Landscape, Historic Environment and People)).
