Import licensing requirement

 On 18 August 2016, the European Commission announced in a press release that it will accept Indonesia's licensing scheme for exports of verified legal timber to the European Union.
Indonesia was hence added to the list of eligible countries in the EU Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade Regulation (FLEGT).
The Commission explained that back in 2002, only 20% of Indonesian timber was legal but since then the percentage has risen to over 90%. Also, the EC mentioned that one third of all tropical timber imported to the EU comes from Indonesia.
The date when the licenses will start being accepted was set to 15 November 2016.
