The Brazilian system was submitted to PEFC after being revised in line with PEFC requirements. The national system is now undergoing the PEFC assessment process, carried out by an independent PEFC Registered Assessor. It must pass this assessment to maintain its PEFC endorsement. 

An important aspect of the assessment process is the public consultation. Over the sixty-day consultation, stakeholders from around the world can give their comments and provide feedback on any aspect of the system. The Registered Assessor will use the information received from this consultation in their assessment of the system.

Give your feedback.

PEFC in Brazil

Brazil joined PEFC in 2002, making the first country from South America to join the PEFC alliance. Its national system was endorsed in 2005 and re-endorsed in 2011. There are currently more than 4.7 million hectares of PEFC-certified forest area in the country. 

Give your feedback.

Maintaining endorsements

For a national system to maintain its endorsement, it must meet a series of endorsement milestones. These milestones are linked to the national periodic review of the system and the sustainable forest management standard.

National systems go through a periodic review five years after their national approval (first endorsement milestone). The periodic review includes a gap analysis, public consultation and consideration of feedback received while the standard is in force.

National approval of the Portuguese forest certification standard: 29 March 2021
