RSPO BoG endorsed MYNI 2014

RSPO BoG endorsed MYNI 2014

(10th March 2015)



RSPO Board of Governors (BoG) has endorsed the revised Malaysian National Interpretation (MYNI) document at a meeting on 6th March 2015. MYNI 2014, as it is known, is based on the RSPO P&C 2013 and supersedes MYNI 2010 which has been used for certification of plantation and mills in Malaysia.


MYNI 2014 has been developed by a Task Force with balanced representation from all the RSPO stakeholder groups. The Task Force held numerous physical meetings prior to finalising the document. In compliance to international best practice, public consultations were held as part of creating awareness and getting feedback on the MYNI 2014 document.


Prior to endorsement by the BoG, the document has been reviewed by the RSPO Secretariat and members of the RSPO Standards & Certification Standing Committee (S&CSC).


The endorsed document is effective immediately. Certification bodies and RSPO member companies are strongly encouraged to start using MYNI 2014 for any new audits as well as annual surveillance audits (ASAs). It is compulsory for all audits and ASAs carried out from 1st May 2015 to be based on the MYNI 2014.


The MYNI 2014 document is available HERE.
