Regulation of our operations

Regulation of our operations

The Forest Practices Authority, an independent Government organisation, regulates all forestry operations on both public and private land including those conducted by Sustainable Timber Tasmania.

This is achieved through the Forest Practices system that ensures forest practices provide protection for the natural and cultural values of forests.

As part of the Forest Practices system, Forest Practices Plans are prepared to cover all forestry associated quarry activities, road construction, harvesting and forest establishment and regeneration operations in Tasmania.

FPPs are prepared by highly qualified Forest Practices Officers and other specialist staff employed by Sustainable Timber Tasmania. The plans cover all harvesting and forest establishment operations in Tasmania and associated activities such as quarries and road construction. For more information, see Fact Sheet No. 3 Forest Practices Plans in the tab below.
