Revised National Risk Assessment Approved for the Czech Republic

On 13 May 2015, FSC International approved a revision to the National Risk Assessment (NRA) for the Czech Republic. The NRA was revised following the release of the results of Transparency International’s Corruption Perception Index for 2014.

The Czech Republic’s score in the 2014 Corruption Perception Index was 51 (compared to 48 for 2013). This moved the score above the threshold of 50 for the perception of corruption in the risk assessment requirements. The change meant that the Czech Republic could be designated ‘low risk’ for the relevant risk indicator, and for the whole of Controlled Wood Category 1: Illegally harvested wood.

Before approval by FSC International, FSC Czech Republic consulted national stakeholders about the change, and the FSC Network Partner’s Board of Directors then approved it.

The NRA provides the risk designations to be used by organizations sourcing Controlled Wood in the Czech Republic, following the FSC Controlled Wood Chain of Custody standard FSC-STD-40-005 V2-1. The NRA was developed and revised according to previous normative requirements for risk assessments, following both the procedure (FSC-PRO-60-002 V2-0) and the Controlled Wood Chain of Custody standard.

It is important to note that since the revision process began in 2014, FSC-PRO-60-002 was revised to Version 3-0, which entered into force on 1 January 2015. Future revisions, and the development of new NRAs will be conducted according to the updated procedure.

The NRA for the Czech Republic can be found on this webpage, along with all the other currently approved NRAs. It will also soon be uploaded to the Global Forest Registry.
