Forestry Operator Accreditation System (FOAS)
Forestry Operator Accreditation System FOAS
National Environmental Standards for Plantation Forestry – implications for FOAS
In response to the National Environmental Standards for Plantation Forestry (NES-PF) regulations which came into effect on 1 May 2018 the Bay of Plenty Regional Council has amended the Regional Natural Resources Plan to remove forestry specific rules and related provisions.
This amendment includes the removal of the Forestry Operators Accreditation System (Schedule 12) and associated plan rules (LM R11 (Rule 3) and LM R12 (Rule 3A).
The Forestry Operators Accreditation System is therefore no longer in operation and accreditation is no longer valid as of 1 May 2018.
