The Guidance Note was approved by the Procurement Board on 12 November 2009. It was revised on 31 August 2011 to include more information on the FLEGT licensed timber scheme and also to inform procurement practitioners that the certification schemes now require certain social criteria to be met including safeguarding the basic labour rights and health and safety of forest workers. These are included in the Model Conditions of Contract at Annex C.
