SVLK Flawed: An Independent Evaluation of Indonesia's Timber Legality Certification System

The Study found the following shortcomings:

Since its inception the SVLK standard was weakened repeatedly.

SVLK certifies operations which are not in compliance with various government regulations.

SVLK certifies operations which are not sustainable.

SVLK certifies operations which may source illegally and/or unsustainably produced timber from other companies.

SVLK certified companies had serious legality and sustainability issues in their forestry operations.

Independent monitoring of the SVLK process has not been effective.
