The SFI Sustainable Forestry Initiative® Standard (SFIS) makes provisions for the public to report inconsistent practices through the appropriate Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) Implementation Committee.
An inconsistent practice is a non-conformance to the SFIS by an SFI Program Participant. The Western Canada SFI Implementation Committee (WCSIC) maintains a secondary responsibility for receiving SFI program-related complaints against program participants in British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan and determining if they warrant investigation and ensuring a credible response.
Any stakeholder or members of the public with questions or concerns about Program Participants are first encouraged to contact the Program Participant directly. If contacting the Participant directly does not satisfy the stakeholder's concern, the next step is to contact the WCSIC to file the concern. Further information about public inquiries and official complaints component of the SFI Standard are outlined in SFI Requirements: Section 11 – Public Inquiries and Official Complaints.
For more details please refer to the WCSIC Procedure for Addressing Allegations of SFI Program Non-Conformance.
Please report inconsistent practices to:
