For all of our products, we only use timber from renewable sources that are government controlled. SVLK is an Indonesian decree to ensure the legality of all timber products. In June 2009 the Government of Indonesia issued the Ministry of Forestry Decree No. P.38/Menhut-II/2009 on the Standards and Guidelines of Performance Evaluation of Sustainable Forest Management (SFM) and Timber Legality Verification for Permit Holder or on Private Forest. The new regulation, known as the Timber Legality Assurance System (or SVLK in Indonesian) has been implemented since September 2009. By the end of 2011, the regulation was revised and improved by the issuance of Ministry of Forestry Regulation No. P68/Menhut-II/2011. All Ballywilliam products are covered by SVLK Certificate and fulfil all Indonesian Government requirements. This means we can ship our products all around the world. We send all necessary paperwork (FLEGT etc) with shipping documents.
