CHAPTER II

FLEGT LICENSING SCHEME

Article 3

1.  The FLEGT licensing scheme shall apply only to imports from partner countries.

2.  Each Partnership Agreement shall specify an agreed schedule for implementing the commitments entered into by that Agreement.

Article 4

1.  Imports into the Community of timber products exported from partner countries shall be prohibited unless the shipment is covered by a FLEGT licence.

▼M1

2.  In order to provide the necessary assurance as to the legality of the timber products concerned, the Commission shall assess existing schemes that guarantee the legality and reliable tracking of timber products exported from partner countries, and adopt implementing acts to approve them. Those implementing acts shall be adopted in accordance with the examination procedure referred to in Article 11(3).

The schemes approved by the Commission may form the basis of a FLEGT licence.

3.  Timber products of species listed in Annexes A, B and C to Council Regulation (EC) No 338/97 ( 3 ) shall be exempt from the requirement laid down in paragraph 1 of this Article.

Article 5

1.  A FLEGT licence covering each shipment shall be available to the competent authority at the same time as the customs declaration for that shipment is presented for release for free circulation in the Community. The competent authorities shall keep a record — in electronic or paper format — of the original FLEGT licence together with the corresponding customs declaration.

Import of timber products under a FLEGT licence issued to a market participant shall be accepted as long as the market participant’s licence remains valid.

2.  The competent authorities shall provide the Commission, or persons or bodies designated by the Commission, with access to the relevant documents and data, should problems arise which impair the effective operation of the FLEGT licensing scheme.

3.  The competent authorities shall grant to the persons or bodies designated by partner countries as being responsible for the third party monitoring of the FLEGT licensing scheme access to the relevant documents and data, but the competent authorities shall not be required to provide any information which they are not permitted to communicate pursuant to their national law.

4.  The competent authorities shall decide on the need for further verification of shipments using a risk-based approach.

5.  In case of doubt as to the validity of the licence, the competent authorities may ask the licensing authorities for additional verification and seek further clarification, as set out in the Partnership Agreement with the exporting partner country.

6.  Member States may collect fees to cover the necessary expenses arising from official acts by competent authorities required for control purposes under this Article.

7.  Customs authorities may suspend the release of or detain timber products where they have reason to believe that the licence may not be valid. Costs incurred while the verification is completed shall be at the expense of the importer, except where the Member State concerned determines otherwise.

8.  Each Member State shall determine the penalties to be imposed where the provisions of this Regulation are infringed. Such penalties shall be effective, proportionate and dissuasive.

▼M1

9.  In order to ensure uniform conditions for the implementation of this Article, the Commission shall, by means of implementing acts, adopt the procedural modalities and the documents of a standard format, including their possible means. Those implementing acts shall be adopted in accordance with the examination procedure referred to in Article 11(3).

▼B

The LIU is an information management unit which validates information concerning V-Legal Document/FLEGT licence issuance. The LIU is also responsible for general information exchange on the TLAS, and receives and stores relevant data and information on the issuance of certificates of legality and FLEGT licences. It also responds to queries from competent authorities of trading partners and stakeholders. Some of the verification bodies, which are conformity assessment bodies accredited by the Indonesian National Accreditation Body (KAN), are authorized and overseen by the Indonesian Ministry of Forestry and Environment to act as licensing authorities. An updated list of authorized licensing authorities is available through the LIU and also at the link: http://silk.dephut.go.id/index.php/info/lvlk.
