Benefits of registration

The system will assure anyone dealing with registered log traders and forestry advisers that they meet the forestry practice standards, and they are receiving expert and impartial advice from forest advisers with the right knowledge and experience.

Registered log traders and forestry advisers have passed a background check, including a criminal conviction check. (This is referred to as “fit and proper person requirements” in the regulations and legislation.) Registered forestry advisers must also provide evidence of their qualifications and experience. Once registered, log traders and forestry advisers have ongoing obligations they must meet.
