Step 2 - Enhance value through certification

Western Australian sandalwood is a renewable resource that can be grown, harvested and regenerated. The Forest Products Commission manages this resource to internationally recognised standards. This ensures that environmental, social and cultural values are preserved, adding value through expanded international market opportunities.


  • The Forest Products Commission will maintain its internationally recognised Environmental Management Systems (EMS ISO 14001) certification and pursue Australian Forestry Standard certification.
  • Value adding opportunities will be created through branding that recognises the legal source, regeneration efforts and the involvement of Aboriginal people.
