Introduction to PEFC and MTCC 
75% of all certified forests globally is certified to PEFC, which manages 790 million acres of forest area in compliance with internationally accepted Sustainability Benchmark. PEFC certification provides assurance that forests are managed in line with challenging environmental, social and economic requirements. Companies which adopt this certification are recognized by large MNCs and PLCs as a Responsible Supply Chain Vendor. PEFC certification is a standard of choice for procurement policies around the world. Currently more than 20,000 companies and organizations have achieved PEFC chain of custody certification in more than 70 countries.
Established in 1998, the Malaysian Timber Certification Council (MTCC) is an independent organisation tasked 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 market demand for certified timber and timber products.

The MTCS is the first tropical timber certification scheme in the Asia Pacific region to be endorsed by the PEFC. As a PEFC-endorsed scheme, the MTCS is now recognised by many national procurement policies notably in Europe and the Green Building Systems in many developed countries.
