This Technical Report is designed to be used in conjunction with ISO 14001 and ISO 14004. It provides a link between the management system approach of ISO 14001 and the range of forest policy and forest management performance objectives, including SFM principles and intergovernmental Criteria & Indicators, that a forestry organization can consider. It also provides references to the ISO 14000 series of International Standards, application of forestry laws and regulations, and the other matters that a forestry organization can take into consideration as it implements an environmental management system.
This Technical Report, like ISO 14001, does not propose any forestry-specific requirements. Its content is not normative in any sense, but is intended to be informative. Moreover, it does not establish performance levels for forest management. This Technical Report therefore cannot form the basis for environmental performance claims and does not create a product label.
