SURVEY: Impact of Movement Control Order (MCO) on Forest Management and Chain of Custody Certificate Holders


As a response to the novel coronavirus pandemic (Covid19) outbreak, the Government of Malaysia has imposed the Movement Control Order (MCO) effective on 18 March 2020 throughout the country in an attempt to curb the spread of infections through human interactions. This consequently has led to disruptions in the operations of various industries, including the forestry and timber sector.

To understand how the MCO has impacted the forest management and chain of custody certification activities under the Malaysian Timber Certification Scheme (MTCS) and the operations of the timber companies, MTCC is conducting a survey among all MTCS certificate holders, seeking their valuable feedback including any assistance needed, with the view to provide these impacts to the Ministry of Plantation Industries and Commodities (MPIC) for their reference and consideration.  

We therefore hope that you would participate in this survey (please click on hyperlink below) latest by 20 April 2020 (Monday).  Please be assured that your feedback will be kept private and confidential. Thank you for your kind operation.
