PALMOILMAGAZINE, JAKARTA – The European Union Deforestation-free Regulation (EUDR), set to be officially implemented in 2025, poses a serious concern for many exporters, stakeholders, and planters in Indonesia, particularly in the palm oil sector.

This regulation mandates that all exported commodities from plantation sectors must provide evidence that they do not originate from areas at high risk of deforestation.

To ensure that Indonesian export commodities such as palm oil, coffee, chocolate, and rubber meet EUDR standards, stakeholders must establish traceability of their sources. PT Surveyor Indonesia has developed a traceability platform for multiple commodities.

This platform encompasses data collection and management, planters’ traceability registration maps, and other activities relevant to business-to-business (B2B) operations.

The platform has undergone a series of tests in collaboration with various parties involved in palm oil and other commodity supply chains. Additionally, PT Surveyor Indonesia is actively engaging with the government to expand the platform into a national-scale dashboard, coordinated by the Coordinating Ministry for Economic Affairs, particularly in the food and agri-business sectors.

The traceability platform is continually being enhanced to improve its traceability features, which are crucial for independent and plasma smallholders, as well as other commodity industries.

“Including the ease of getting registration mechanisms and others to ensure privacy and commodity supply chain traceability,” Director of Human Resource PT Surveyor Indonesia, Lussy Ariani Seba, said, as Palmoilmagazine.comquoted from Liputan on Thursday, May 23, 2024.

Data security would be a significant aspect of the traceability platform. PT Surveyor Indonesia confirmed that a blockchain system would be applied to maintain the security and integrity of commodity data that was gathered.

The system would help make sure that input data on the platform would be secured and trusted and would qualify for the close conditions in EUDR.

As part of the dashboard taskforce on a national scale, PT Surveyor Indonesia is in charge of developing, managing, and facilitating every development and traceability system test on a national scale for commodities. It would cover data collection and management, mapping, registration, certification, and planters’ traceability, just like being regulated in EUDR and other global-scale policies.

In the future, Lussy continued that PT Surveyor Indonesia would get access to a national-scale dashboard platform in order to reinforce the traceability system’s future and aspects, including the mechanism application to get registration and certification, the option to get offline data input, and other things to ensure data privacy and commodity supply chain traceability.

These are significant to make sure that the export mainstay commodity from Indonesia qualifies for international scale standards and is competitive in trade globally.

By taking the initiative, it is hoped the commodities from Indonesia will be accepted and traded in Europe, as well as the sustainable and environmental ones. (T2)
