The Indonesian Palm Oil Producers Association (Gapki) chairman, Fadhil Hasan, welcomed the move, saying that the government needed to prepare the executing institutions and details on how the certification could be implemented.

“Dissemination of information about concepts and mechanisms of ISPO certification among palm oil industrial players is needed,” he said, adding that revisions could be made along with the implementation.

The ISPO scheme was unveiled last year by Agriculture Minister Suswono and was considered by many as a rival to the Kuala Lumpur-based RSPO, which, according to Indonesia’s palm oil industry, was biased toward buyer countries and too expensive. THE END
