The Natural Forest Standard is a not-for-profit organisation and the fees involved are reflective of the actual costs to the Standard and its Governing body to facilitate the project process.

Technical and Risk Panel review fees of approximately £2,000-£3,000 will be applicable per review dependent on complexity.

Validation and Verification

The validation and verification costs of an individual project vary considerably, as these fees are entirely subject to the discretion of the independent third-party certification organisation that the project developer engages with. These costs will be dependent on the size, complexity and location of the project.  Each project must be fully re-verified at intervals no greater than 5 years.
