Logging operations

Logging companies are required to sign a Social Agreement with affected communities before logging in their area. This provision is not been followed completely. For example, a community group accused FDA of complicity when the Authority issued permits to two companies for the same concession, but the affected communities signed a Social Agreement with only one. The Affected Communities of FMC B had signed a Social Agreement with EJ & J Investment Corporation but FDA issued a harvesting certificate to both EJ & J Investment Corporation and Malavasi Corporation on April 1, 2010, to operate the concession jointly. Similar case has been reported for FMC C.

Completeness The significance of the due diligence is been eroded by FDA issuance of harvesting certificate to new significant individuals not part of the contract allocation process at the initial stage.
