The Remediation and Compensation Procedure (RaCP) requires RSPO members who own and/or manage oil palm plantations (including associated & schemed smallholders, and all other exclusively contracted out growers of fresh fruit bunches) to disclose any land clearance without prior HCV assessment since Nov 2005.

RSPO members who have disclosed such clearance are required to conduct the Land Use Change Analysis (LUCA) in order to calculate the Final Conservation Liability (FCL).

The original deadline to submit the LUCA was on 31st September 2014, which was set during the one year staged implementation period. Both the LUCA deadline and staged implementation period have passed. To date, 22 companies have submitted complete LUCAs, 14 companies have submitted incomplete LUCAs and 16 companies have yet to submit any LUCAs.

The Biodiversity and High Conservation Values Working Group (BHCV WG) has recommended the following actions against LUCA non-submitters:

  1. Companies which have submitted incomplete LUCAs shall submit the full analysis by 31 December 2015 to the RSPO. Failure to submit the full analysis would result in RSPO treating all land clearance as coefficient 1.0.
  2. Companies which have not submitted LUCAs shall submit the full analysis by 31 December 2015 to the RSPO. Companies that fail to submit the full analysis by the said deadline will be recommended for complaints.

Below are the list of companies that have submitted incomplete LUCAs to the RSPO:
