January 2007. These changes will affect timberprocurement for reconstruction and rehabilitation in NAD and Nias Island.Most of the timber products used for reconstruction and rehabilitation areprocessed wood products. The documentation required would be basedon the type of products procured.If an NGO or contractor wants to buy and transport semi-finishedproducts such as sawn timber, veneer, chip, plywood, and laminatedveneer lumber (LVL) from mills or vendors, it requires a FA-KO. The FA-KO is issued by the mills or vendors and its number is registered by theForestry Office.If an NGO or contractor wants to buy and transport finished productssuch as moldings, dowels, doors, windows, furniture and other endproducts (such as finger joint for flooring or wall)) from mills or vendors, it requires an invoice from the mills or vendors.
