Ministry of Forestry (MoF) separates logs from Industrial Timber Estate (HTI) with similar products derived from IUPHHK (Forest Timber Product Utilization Permit) in natural forest.
In addition to discriminating timber transport documents from HTI and HPH, the Director of Forestry Dept. of Forestry Affairs Bambang Edy Purnomo said in discussions on the Revision of Minister of Forestry Decree No.126 / Kpts-II / 2003 in Jakarta on Tuesday that he hoped that this revision could shorten the process and mechanism of issuance transportation documents as well as for the purpose of chain-of-custody.
In the revision, logs from IUPHHK, Timber Utilization Permits, clearance of natural forest for timber plantations, and Timber Forest Product Utilization Permit (IPHHK) in natural forests will use the Certificate of Sahya Kayu Bulat (SKSKB).
Meanwhile, logs from plantations use log transport invoices (FA-KB). In addition to plantations, FA-KB can also be used to transport logs from IPK, land clearing and timber stockpiling (TPK) of small diameter size.
While the document for forest products that come out of the industry or wood-shaped processed using the Invoice of Wood Transportation (FA-KO).
The transport document is a certificate of legality of forest products (SKSHH), Bambang said. In order to control, transport invoice forms for timber from Java and Madura, Bali, NTT, NTB are white, Sumatran is Yellow, Kalimantan is red, Sulawesi is blue, and Maluku, West Irian Jaya and Papua use green color.
In addition to color, procurement and control of this invoice invoice also uses a serial number arranged in a 15 digit code.
To facilitate services to the business world, according to him, the Ministry of Forestry also grants the right to timber owners to issue and hold invoices for timber transportation or processed timber.
This revision is also expected to clearly separate the stands as state assets and logs that become assets of the company after the Reforestation Fund (DR) and the Provision of Forest Resources (PSDH) are paid. Thus, Bambang said, there is legal certainty on forest products that have been owned by companies or individuals.
To monitor that there is no violation in the report on the use of wood raw materials, said Minister of Forestry MS Kaban, post audit will be done in the landfill and wood processing industry.If it is not done by the Ministry of Forestry officials, according to him, "Post audit will be carried out by a surveyor institution to be appointed by the government."
With this provision, he said, there will be no more examination on the completeness of the transportation letter in the middle of the road that has the potential to hamper the flow of supply and cause high cost economy.
Through the revision of this decree, said Minister of Forestry, basically MoF expects the business sector in the forestry sector to grow back and run rationally.
The problem is, he said, how in order to implement the timber administration does not happen an affair between the business world and bureaucrats that harm the state finances in the form of forest and non-tax state revenue (PNBP).
"This revision is expected to be able to monitor the rights of the state, although the business world is given great flexibility in relation to this timber administration."
In the discussion, entrepreneurs in the forestry sector revealed that the bureaucratic chain they now have to go through is quite long, or it takes 16 steps to have an Annual Plan of Work to be able to cut timber in natural forest and HTI can be implemented.
They also requested that the Ministry of Forestry be able to clarify the personal or corporate rights to the timber for the DR DR and PSDH already paid and what agency or institution protects the timber. (* / dar)
