Approval granted by FSC for certificate holders to use Paraquat in Autumn 2014


Following extensive work done by the FSA Environmental Committee and in particular the FSA Environmental Consultant, Dr John Scotcher, the FSC Pesticides Committee has granted FSC certificate holders in South Africa approval to use Paraquat on a one time basis on slopes greater than 20% under certain conditions and ONLY for the period March and April 2014.  Please refer to the attached files for the conditions and further details.

A derogation for the use of Paraquat for use from 2015 onwards will be submitted in due course by Forestry South Africa on behalf of all certificate holders.

In order not to jeopardise the success of the above mentioned derogation application, all certificate holders are requested to strictly comply with the conditions under which the current once-off derogation has been granted.
