What to Prepare for Certification

Step 1: Make Sure Your Company’s Vision and Mis­sion are aimed at Achiev­ing Fair and Sus­tain­able For­est Management
Your com­pany suc­cess in obtain­ing cer­ti­fi­ca­tion mainly depends on your company’s (Man­age­ment Unit) com­mit­ment to achieve the ideal tar­get of Fair and Sus­tain­able For­est Man­age­ment. This com­mit­ment must be orig­i­nated from the company’s lead­ers and shareholders.
Step 2: Pre­pare the Required Documents

Scheme II-D: Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion for Indige­nous Peo­ple Forest

1. Doc­u­ments in the form of indige­nous com­mu­nity state­ment on the exist­ing tra­di­tional law and the area of which it applies. The doc­u­ment also explains about agree­ments on tra­di­tional orga­ni­za­tional sys­tem, man­age­ment of ‘adat’ area (usu­ally for­est area claimed as adapt area), and the man­age­ment of for­est area related to the issues of for­est pro­duc­tion, envi­ron­ment and social. Adat (indige­nous) man­age­ment can be described as clear agree­ments on sanction/regulation imposed on cer­tain iss­sues. The sanction/ reg­u­la­tion imposed is deter­mined by a well-recognized tra­di­tional mech­a­nism that has been prac­ticed for gen­er­a­tions. It has an impli­ca­tion on the set of rules that reg­u­lates the com­mu­nal and or indi­vid­ual behav­ior in uti­liz­ing each of the (for­est ) resource used.
2. Doc­u­ments in the form of tra­di­tional law’s scope imposed for a cer­tain area (usu­ally the area claimed as adat for­est) of which ‘recog­ni­tion’ can be ver­i­fied on the field. The infor­ma­tion pro­vided on the map (describ­ing the bound­aries of the adat for­est areas) can be proofed as ‘rec­og­nized’ by the par­ties (usu­ally indige­nous com­mu­nity groups) resid­ing in the bound­ary areas. The ‘recog­ni­tion’ can be fur­ther observed from the level of which it is accepted. The ‘recog­ni­tion’ does not nec­es­sar­ily takes the form of legal recog­ni­tion from the gov­ern­ment. The high accep­tance of the recog­ni­tion can be demon­strated by the absence of con­flict, of which indi­cat­ing recog­ni­tion rejec­tion, in the community
3. If avail­able, doc­u­ments from regional or cen­tral gov­ern­ment explain­ing the exis­tence of the adat community.
4. If avail­able, his­tor­i­cal doc­u­ments, such as tra­di­tional trac­tates, Dutch/Portuguese gov­ern­ment maps (usu­ally refer­ring to tra­di­tional law man­age­ment area identification)
5. If avail­able, doc­u­ments on local or Inter­na­tional NGO assis­tance reports, regional or cen­tral gov­ern­ment assis­tance pro­grams, national or inter­na­tional stud­ies, enable to explain for­est resources arrange­ment in the adat law man­age­ment area
6. Doc­u­ments in the form of meet­ing min­utes that invites and/or hands over man­date to the Assist­ing Insti­tu­tions as Spon­sor Insti­tu­tions dur­ing the Eco­la­bel cer­ti­fi­ca­tion appli­ca­tion level
7. SCBFM (Sus­tain­able Com­mu­nity Based For­est Man­age­ment) Per­for­mance Report” doc­u­ments, pre­pared by Underwriter/Sponsor Institutions
8. If avail­able, other man­age­ment plans
9. Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion pay­ment receipt, if any
Step 3: Sub­mit Appli­ca­tion for LEI Certification
Sub­mit the LEI cer­ti­fi­ca­tion appli­ca­tion with the required doc­u­ments to a Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion Body. LEI has accred­ited 3 Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion Bod­ies own­ing com­pe­tence and capac­ity to con­duct cer­ti­fi­ca­tion assess­ment based on LEI’s stan­dards. Infor­ma­tion on the fol­low­ing Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion Bod­ies may be obtained from their respec­tive websites:
1. PT. Mutu Agung Lestari
2. PT. TUV Reind­land Indonesia
3. PT. SUCOFINDO
4. PT. SGS Indonesia
Step 4: Field Coverage
After the appli­ca­tion process and cer­ti­fi­ca­tion require­ment are com­pleted, LEI will con­duct field cov­er­age to iden­tify and “por­tray” the con­di­tion of the for­est man­age­ment area sub­mit­ted for cer­ti­fi­ca­tion. Based on this, LEI will pro­vide rec­om­men­da­tions and options to the Man­age­ment Unit to undergo Grad­ual Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion while con­duct­ing improve­ments, or to directly undergo full certification.In grad­ual cer­ti­fi­ca­tion process, there are clear pre-determined tar­get of improve­ment stages, for both short and long term. The required improve­ment to carry out will very much depend on the institution’s com­pli­ance with the cri­te­ria and indi­ca­tors stated in the cer­ti­fi­ca­tion. Please refer to LEI Tech­ni­cal Doc­u­ment. LEI has 4 cer­ti­fi­ca­tion sys­tems to suit types of busi­ness and for­est man­age­ments. You may select a suit­able cer­ti­fi­ca­tion sys­tem for your cur­rent man­age­ment for­est type by refer­ring to LEI Man­ual and Guidelines.
Step 5: Assessment
Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion Assess­ment is con­ducted over doc­u­ments pro­vided and onsite activ­i­ties. See Stages of Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion Process Assessment.
Step 6: Assess­ment Result
Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion assess­ment result is either Passed or Not Passed. Those who do not pass the cer­ti­fi­ca­tion process may reap­ply for cer­ti­fi­ca­tion in the future, or take the grad­ual cer­ti­fi­ca­tion. Should the cer­ti­fi­ca­tion appli­ca­tion is re-submitted in less than 6 month after the cer­ti­fi­ca­tion deci­sion, the man­age­ment unit may not undergo another doc­u­ment check­ing and onsite coverage
Step 7: Cer­tifi­cate Issue
LEI issues the cer­tifi­cate. Cer­tifi­cate for Sus­tain­able Pro­duc­tion For­est Man­age­ment is valid for 5 years.

    saya memi­liki kebun jati seluas 12 hek­tar isi tana­man jati 13.000 pohon tahun tanam 1991 dan 1995 sta­tus kebun tanah berser­ti­fikat hak milik lokasi Kel. Ambalo­dangge Kec. Laeya-Lainea Kab. Kon­awe Sela­tan (Kendari) Prop. Sulawesi Teng­gara, bersama ayah saya sejak tahun 1991 telah menyadari dan mem­u­lai menanam jati seba­gai cara yang tepat untuk inves­tasi masa depan dari pada meng­gan­tungkan masa depan den­gan cara merusak hutan, seba­gai gam­baran awal saya ingin men­girim foto kebun jati milik saya, olehnya saya mohon petun­juk untuk men­da­p­atkan ser­ti­fikasi dari LEI.Edited-(identitas ada di redaksi)

  2. Pak Mus­tar Taro yb,
    Baik sekali niat Bapak untuk meng­ganti cara pan­dang menebangi hutan den­gan menanam jati yang bisa dijadikan lahan inves­tasi. Kami san­gat men­dukung dan berharap hal ini bisa dit­u­larkan kepada komu­ni­tas Bapak di Ambalo­dangge. Selain Bapak, apakah ada lagi di kawasan Bapak yang menanam jati di lahan miliknya ? Jika iya itu san­gat bagus, apalagi jika ada beber­apa KK atau kelom­pok tani. Dan jika di antara kelom­pok KK/tani sudah ada semacam per­jan­jian atau kesep­a­katan seperti gili­ran waktu tebang dan tanam, wah itu luar biasa. Krn kesep­a­katan antar kelom­pok men­ge­nai pen­gelo­laan hutan men­jadi salah satu tolok ukur apakah hutan rakyat ini mem­pun­yai potensi bisa men­jadi lestari atau tidak. Selain itu juga meringankan biaya ser­ti­fikasi bila ditang­gung bersama kelom­pok. Per­tanyaan­nya, jika hanya Bapak sendiri, siapa yang akan men­jamin pen­gelo­laan hutan bisa lestari ? Mungkin Bapak sendiri bisa men­jamin, tapi kon­disi bisa cepat berubah. Mungkin saja ada pihak luar yang memaksa Bapak untuk mere­lakan hutan jati Bapak dite­bang. Den­gan kelom­pok tani hutan, posisi Bapak dan kelom­pok akan lebih kuat meng­hadapi tekanan luar yang men­gan­cam kelestar­ian hutan rakyat. Jadi kami anjurkan Bapak dan petani hutan yang lain untuk berkelom­pok mem­ben­tuk kelom­pok tani atau perkumpu­lan petani jati. Per­syaratan ser­ti­fikasi bisa dil­i­hat di web­site ini bagian Per­si­a­pan Ser­ti­fikasi. Untuk mem­perkaya infor­masi Bapak, saya infokan bahwa di Kab. Muna sudah ger­akan hutan rakyat lestari yang diko­or­di­nasi oleh LSM SWAMI yang men­dampingi masyarakat petani hutan jati di 35 desa, den­gan luasan hutan men­ca­pai lebih dari 1.000 hek­tar, yang dim­i­liki oleh sek­i­tar 943 petani. Bulan April 2009, sudah ada Asosi­asi Petani Hutan Jati Milik (PHJM) Kabu­paten Muna, seba­gai wadah bagi para petani hutan jati. Mereka memang belum maju ser­ti­fikasi namun per­si­a­pan sudah banyak dilakukan. Mudah-mudahan den­gan infor­masi yang semakin kaya, saya yakin Bapak suatu hari akan men­jadi bagian dari pemi­lik hutan jati rakyat yang lestari.
    Salam lestari.
