Join the World's Largest Forest Certification System

PEFC Council is a membership-based association. Up until 2009, membership consisted of national forest certification organizations and observers. Starting from 2010, PEFC Council includes International Stakeholder members.

International Stakeholder membership is open to entities operating in two or more countries, or legally registered as an international organization. Companies, organizations, and associations with principles and objectives supportive to PEFC's are encouraged to apply. Organizations not eligible for International Stakeholder membership are encouraged to apply for membership with their national PEFC office.

International Stakeholder members have the same rights and obligations as all other PEFC members. Collectively all members form the PEFC General Assembly, the highest decision making body of the organization, which sets the strategic direction of PEFC Council.
