The Chairperson of Parliament’s Environment Select Committee, Dr Duncan Webb, is calling for public submissions on the Forests (Regulation of Log Traders and Forestry Advisers) Amendment Bill.

The bill seeks to establish a registration system for log traders and forestry advisers that strengthens the integrity of the forestry supply chain, and supports a continuous, predictable, and long-term supply of timber for domestic processing and export.

The Chair has set a closing date for submissions of 21 May 2020. The committee is due to report to the House by 5 June 2020.
