Abstract

This study analyzes the certified timber products production and trade, the effects of timber certification and the role of timber certification on tropical timber trade in Malaysia. Timber certification is an important role in the forestry sector and considered to be complementary to forest management policies and takes a major player in Malaysia's economic growth on tropical timber trade. Log export restrictions in Malaysia have been economically inefficient and have exacerbated environmental degradation by encouraging wasteful resource use. The significant of this study is to obtain the further development of timber certification in Malaysia.
