What Needed to Be IFCC/PEFC Certified

Indonesian Forestry Certification Cooperation (IFCC) is a not-for-profit organization that establish, own and develop a scheme of sustainable forest management and chain of custody.
 
IFCC was established on 9th September 2011, which its objective is to promote and increase sustainable forest management through the implementation of forestry certification by adopting the Programme for the the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) scheme, which includes among others, but not limited to, certification of forest management, forest products, forest product-processing industries and the chain of custody.
 

"IFCC applies probably one of the most stringent SFM certification schemes in the world. Our 'certify-ees' have to first meet the Indonesian Government's Timber Legality Verification System. But that alone is not enough. It is not even enough for them to do no harm to the forests or the community. They need to do good. But in many cases even doing good may not be enough." - IFCC Chairman, Dradjad H. Wibowo.
