VCS methodology VM0012 has been revised to apply to projects on public lands.
The methodology was previously limited to projects on private, fee simple properties.
VM0012: Improved Forest Management in Temperate and Boreal Forests (LtPF) v1.1 is available for immediate use.
In addition, VM0012 was required on 30 March to undergo a separate revision to conform with requirements for accounting emissions from harvested wood. The required revision may be completed using a streamlined process facilitated by VCS.
Projects may continue using VM0012 — either v1.0 or v1.1 — provided a validation report is issued by 30 September 2012. Later projects must apply a future version of the methodology. Check the VM0012 page regularly for status updates.
