Certification Review Board

The Certification Review Board (CRB) oversees and audits Certified Forester program implementation, evaluates and periodically reviews program processes and procedures, and makes recommendations as needed to the SAF Council on program guidelines and standards. The CRB investigates questionable compliance and other concerns regarding certification and recertification and serves as the initial appellate body on eligibility decisions. Except for revocation for nonpayment of fees (upon which SAF staff may act), only the Board may revoke or suspend certification once granted.

The Board consists of eight Certified Forester volunteers representing a diversity of forest resources employers and geographic regions, and one public member.
