MYTLAS is the Peninsular Malaysia Timber Legality Assurance System (TLAS)
Malaysia (MY) continues to negotiate with the EU on a FLEGT VPA, which is in the process of being finalised. The MYTLAS is based on the current status of the Timber Legality Assurance System under the EU-MY FLEGT VPA.
The Malaysian Timber Industry Board (MTIB), is the government body currently in charge of Malaysia's timber export licensing system.  Under  FLEGT VPA negotiations, the MTIB is entrusted to operationalise the Malaysian Timber Legality Assurance System (TLAS) which encompasses several other elements as required by the FLEGT VPA process.  The MYTLAS being tested currently is the implementation of this TLAS on the ground and is confident that the MYTLAS will meet the Due Diligence requirements under the EUTR. 
For the purposes of the EUTR, all MY companies are advised to use the MYTLAS when exporting to Europe, even if exporting PEFC-certified materials (declared on the MYTLAS).The MYTLAS is backed by the Government of Malaysia in ensuring that timber and timber products exported from Malaysia are produced in line with the applicable national laws and legislation, as required by the EUTR.
