MALAYSIAN TIMBER CERTIFICATION COUNCIL

Malaysian Timber Certification Council (MTCC) started operation 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 and audit of timber product manufacturers or exporters to ascertain that the timber products manufactured or exported are sourced from sustainably managed forests. This is 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 audits are conducted by independent certification body (CB) notified under the MTCS.

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.
