This presentation gives an overview of recent efforts to formalize the trade of legal timber in China, with a three-part focus: the progress of forest certification programs within China (FSC, PEFC, and the China Forest Certification Council), the development of dual timber legality verification systems (one government-led, the other association-led), and next steps in 2013. The presentation also suggests some opportunities to improve capacity within China.
