If the research involves indigenous communities, Prior Informed Consent is need from the communities.

You would need to apply by a letter in writing in the Malay language to the Chairman of the Development and Security Committee (Jawatankuasa Kemajuan dan Keselamatan Kampung - JKKK) and the Headman (if different persons).

Provide the following information to the indigenous communities for deliberation.

  • the parties involved;
  • the resources involved;
  • the quantity allowed to be taken;
  • the duration of the consent;
  • terms and conditions imposed; and
  • the responsibilities of each party.

Upon approval from the indigenous communities, a copy of the PIC document with the minutes must be furnished to SBC. For more information, please refer to Part V of the Sarawak Biodiversity Regulations, 2016.
