Abstract: The increase in global attention on climate change, also heightens pressure on the implementation of certification on rubberwood plantation. Certification ensures that resources are managed sustainably for economic, environmental and societal benefits. The international push for rubberwood certification is an urgent issue as MalaysiaÕs furniture exporters are facing great pressure from the American and European markets. Some furniture buyers from Europe and America require certification especially from the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes (PEFC).
