Forest Plantation Certification

  • Forest Certification is a tool that verifies and certifies on-ground implementation of forest management according to a set of predetermined requirements based on an independent assessment on the quality of the forest managed.
  • Certification guarantees that the management of forest plantation, the logging contractor that harvested the trees, and the end-product produced from the timber supplied under the term of contract has legal operating rights for the forest in question, maintains a register of all local legislation and codes of behavior relating to forestry and forest harvesting, complies with all the relevant local and national legislation, and has paid all royalties (if, necessary) and taxes due.

MC&I (Forest Plantations)

  • The Malaysian Criteria and Indicators for Forest Management Certification (Forest Plantations) [MC&I (Forest Plantations)] is one of such tool used for assessing forest plantation practices of a designated forest plantation management unit (FMU) for timber certification.
  • The Malaysian Timber Certification Council (MTCC), the accredited body, certified timber products provide the assurance to the customers, especially foreign government bodies that the timber products come from verified legal sources. The MC&I (Forest Plantations) contains 10 Principles (essential rule or element), 55 Criteria (means of judging the Principles) and 106 Indicators (qualitative, quantitative or descriptive attribute periodically measured or monitored according to variables (verifiers) in assessing the direction of change).
