Can I apply for certification by contacting my local FSC office?
FSC offices or representatives do not issue certificates. To obtain certification, interested applicants must contact an independent certification body. FSC offices and representatives can assist in obtaining contacts to certification bodies operating in a specific country.

Which regional classification is used to assign FSC entities to different regions? What is the basis for the creation of sub-regional offices?
FSC uses its own classification of regions, based on the organizational needs and the nature of FSC operations in different parts of the world. Currently FSC has regional offices in Africa, Asia Pacific, Europe and Latin America.
Sub-regional offices are established based on needs including, for example, the need for development or providing support to the operations in a given sub-region.
Currently FSC has sub-regional offices in the Congo Basin, East Africa, South Africa and Central America.
