How is risk going to be defined?

The transaction verification requirement will be implemented where there is substantiated evi- dence of false claims occurring in specified supply chains. Such evidence will consist of one or more of the following:

  • Results of fibre testing;

  • Substantiated complaints;

  • ASI on-site assessments, monitoring, and data analysis;

  • ASI and FSC investigations of entire product types in given countries or regions that

    identify an unacceptable level of misleading claims;

  • Certification body reporting of false claims to FSC and/or ASI.

    In 2017 up to 1,000 businesses globally, with specific focus on the Asia–Pacific region, are expected to be asked to participate in transaction verification. This number is expected to in- crease in 2018–2019 based on results from 2017.
