After been through tight standard audit for V- Legal System, finally Tunas Jaya has already passed the audit and obtained V-Legal Certificate or SVLK.

SVLK stands for Sistem Verifikasi Legalitas Kayu, or Timber Legality Assurance System in English. It is designed to check the legality of timber from forest through to the point of export using independent auditors. Through multi-stakeholder consultation since 2003, finally in June 2009 the governance of Indonesia issued Minister of forestry decree No. P. 38/Menhut-II/2009 on Standards and Guidelines of Performance Evaluation of sustainable Forest Management (SFM) and Timber Legality Verification for Permit holders or Private Forest. This new SVLK regulation, has been in force since September 2009. The regulation were revised and improved by the issuance of Minister of Forestry Regulation No. P68/MenhutII/2011 and No. P45/MenhutII/2012.

An SVLK (TLAS) license guarantees that the Operator/timber industry has complied with legality standards and criteria. Companies that comply with the SVLK need to attach a V-Legal Document to their shipments for export. The V-Legal Document specifies that the timber products being shipped comply with the legality standard as stipulated in the Indonesian regulation. Thus the V-Legal Document provides assurance that the timber and timber product is legal. V-legal Documents are issued by Conformity Assessment Body (Or “LVLK” in Indonesian) as for SVLK certificates.

The European Union adopted the Timber Regulation to halt the circulation of illegal timber in European Market. The Timber Regulation will become effective in March 2013. From then on all imports of timber into any member state of the European Union will have to pass due diligence assessment to prevent illegal timber from entering the market in European Union. However importers will not have to apply this due diligence assessment on FLIEGT licensed timber products from an exporting country like Indonesia that has sign a Voluntary Partnership Agreement (VPA) with the European Union, once this agreement implemented. Such timber is considered zero risk of being illegal under the EU Timber Regulation.
