Malaysian Timber Certification Council (MTCC)
MTCC started in January 1999 as an independent organisation to develop and operate the Malaysian Timber Certification Scheme (MTCS). As a voluntary national scheme, the MTCS provides for independent assessment of forest management practices, to ensure the sustainable management of Malaysia’s natural forest and forest plantations, as well as to meet the demand for certified timber products. The physical assessment on the field is carried out by independet third-party assessor / certification body (CB) notified under the MTCS. MTCC has no jurisdiction and involvement over the work of the CB.
The MTCS has been endorsed by the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) schemes, the largest forest certification programme, representing more than 300 million ha of certified forests worldwide. The MTCS is also the first tropical timber certification scheme in the Asia Pacific region to be endorsed by the PEFC.
- 4.12 million ha of PEFC Certified Forests (as of 28 February 2017)
- 9 FMUs and 7 FPMUs
- 361 PEFC Certificate for Chain of Custody Holders (as of 28 February 2017)
