Despite the increasing use of forest certification in developing countries, however, we still know little about whether, under what conditions, and how it affects forest management and environmental outcomes. To help fill that gap, this paper analyzes corrective action requests (CARs) issued after third-party inspections of FSC-certified forest management units (FMUs) in Mexico. CARs detail the changes in procedures and on-the-ground conditions that land managers must make to either obtain a new certification or retain an existing one. Therefore, they provide insight into how FSC certification affects forest management.
