“Supporting responsible forestry”: the new text of the MIX label

The new label is now available in the FSC Trademark Portal. Between 1 January 2022 and 30 June 2024, certificate holders may use the old or the new MIX label. From 1 July 2024, only the new MIX label will be available for use.

Communicating about controlled wood

The second change of FSC-STD-50-001 V2-1 relates to controlled wood. Certificate holders have the opportunity to promote their sales or sourcing of controlled material or controlled wood by using messaging developed by FSC.

The fixed controlled wood statements approved by the Board of Directors are the following:  

  • FSC® controlled wood mitigates the risk of forest products originating from unacceptable sources (fsc.org/en/cw).  
  • FSC® controlled wood mitigates the risk of forest products originating from unacceptable sources. FSC controlled wood requirements prohibit and are designed to avoid: illegally harvested wood, wood harvested in violation of traditional and human rights, wood from forests with threatened high conservation values, wood from forests with genetically modified trees and wood from forests converted to plantations or non-forest uses. For more information on FSC controlled wood see fsc.org/en/cw
