Department of Agriculture and Water Resources, November 2016
On 16 November 2016 , the department published a consultation paper which outlines potential options for changing the Illegal Logging Prohibition Regulation 2012 (the Regulation). These options seek to improve the trade-off between the cost of complying with the ‘due diligence’ requirements and the risk of illegally logged timber entering the Australian market. The consultation paper is intended to inform stakeholder discussion and feedback on the potential reforms, which may significantly change how businesses and individuals carry out due diligence on imported timber products and domestically grown raw logs.
