The implementation of Sustainable Production Forest Management (SFM) system has been started in Indonesia since the establishment of SFM-SFM Criteria and Indicators based on ITTO Guide Line since 1997 (initially initiated by APHI, in collaboration with Forestry Faculties in Indonesia with further development bythe stipulation of Ministry of Forestry policy,SK.Menhut, No. 4795 / Kpts-II / 2002, on Criteria and Indicator of Sustainable Forest Management, followed by regulation of SK Dirjen BPK No. 42 / Kpts-Set / 2003 on Guidelines Technical Assessment of PHPL Performance by management unit Furthermore stipulation that Production Forest Management by license holder is "obligation - mandatory" hence developed policy of PHPL Performance Assessment is "Mandatory" which is last based on Kepmenhut Permen.LHK No. P.30 / Menlhk / Setjan / PHPL.3 / 3/2016, on Assessment of PHPL and VLK Performance on License Holder, Right of Management or on Right Forest and the Director General of PHPL no.P. 14 / PHPL / Set / 4/2016, tenthg Standards and Guidelines for Performance Assessment of PHPL and VLK.

At the same time developing a scheme of PHPL performance assessment under the FSC standard (as a Global Market requirement) is a "Voluntary" certification.Thus the practice of natural forest production is confronted with two "mandatory" and "option" certification schemes.Under these conditions, to accelerate the achievement of both forms of certification requires assistance from other institutions.In relation to the acceleration process the Pattern Partnership developed in achieving the two certification schemes.The partnership programs in the framework of certification achievements that have been and will continue to be developed in East Kalimantan are in two patterns: partnerships in the form of technical assistance and expertise (TNC-GIZ-WWF) and partnership pole in the Grant Funding aspect (The Borneo Initiative - TBI).This partnership pattern has been developed since 2005 in East Kalimantan.
