Assure your customers that your wood products sourced from Indonesia are produced from legally harvested wood. Verification under the Indonesian Timber Legality Assurance System, INDO-TLAS/Sistem Verifikasi Legalitas Kayu (SVLK) does just that. SCS Global Services can help your company dramatically lower its risk of inadvertent violations of the European Union Timber Regulation (EUTR), the US Lacey Act, Australia’s Illegal Logging Prohibition, and other timber legality regulations.
SVLK verification is available to individual organizations and groups of associated organizations with timber operations in Indonesia, including forest managers, sawmills, pulp mills and manufacturers. Organizations that operate solely in Indonesia as well as organizations elsewhere with supply chain links in Indonesia can seek verification with SCS.
SCS is a global expert in forest management certification and has already conducted numerous successful SVLK audits. In addition, SCS provides certification to the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) standards as well as verification services under all of the leading forest carbon offset schemes.
As part of public outreach on SVLK implementation and also to meet the requirements of the SVLK program, PT. SCS presents a public summary of V-Legal Documents issued for each client. The public summary is presented for each month presenting application of V-Legal Document, conforming application and non-conforming application for each client.

Register for Verification with KAN
First, file a request for SVLK verification with Indonesia’s National Accreditation Committee KAN. (KAN may have already contacted you with a mandate for verification.)
Collect all documents needed for the SVLK verification. Review your systems and practices against SVLK requirements to identify any gaps prior to our assessment.
Engage SCS for a review of all submitted documentation; respond to requests from SCS for any additional information needed.
Undergo an on-site audit in which a SCS auditor reviews quality procedures, tours harvesting areas and processing facilities, and conducts interviews with staff. Following the on-site audit, SCS documents all observations and findings for each requirement of SVLK.
Verification Decision and Report
Based on audit findings, SCS makes a verification decision and issues a final report. Successful applicants are issued an S-LK (Sertifikat Legalitas Kayu) certificate, which leads to V-Legal status for export. The certificate is valid for three years.
After successful verification, you are registered on the SCS website as an S-LK certificate holder with V-Legal status. An annual surveillance audit by SCS is required to maintain certification. You will also receive information about communicating your achievement and using SCS verification marks. We recommend that you apply for SVLK re-verification at least six months prior to your certificate expiration date.
The SVLK verification process is designed to be efficient and cost-effective. The SVLK regulation requires that the entire process from the start of verification to the final report shall take no longer than 69 days. The process could be significantly shorter, however, depending on availability of information pertinent to the audit process.
Costs vary depending on project size, location, complexity and type as well as level of preparedness. Contact SCS for a customized quote.
Any forest manager, factory or wood product trader in Indonesia that handles wood products ultimately bound for export must seek SVLK verification and earn an S-LK certificate.
As of March 2013, any organization importing wood into the EU must provide “due diligence” documentation that the wood was harvested legally. Indonesia has signed a Voluntary Partnership Agreement (VPA) with the EU establishing that V-Legal importers from Indonesia meet this due diligence requirement and do not need any additional audits. That is, the SVLK program supports legal sourcing of wood from Indonesia while streamlining the process of importing wood products into the EU and other major wood product import countries.
With SVLK verification by SCS, your company will have the documentation needed to substantiate the legality of your timber and wood products from Indonesia. SVLK verification is designed to provide credible proof of compliance.
