Illegal Logging Sunsetting Review

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

We are reviewing the Illegal Logging Prohibition Regulation 2012. We are also consulting on wider reforms to the illegal logging laws.

You can now provide feedback on the Regulation and the proposed reforms. Your feedback will help us ensure that the laws:

  • remain effective in protecting the Australian market from illegally logged timber
  • achieve their purpose of promoting trade in sustainable, legally harvested timber.

Reforms being considered

Your feedback will help us ensure that the laws and regulations are still fit-for-purpose.

We would like feedback on reforms such as:

  • receiving information before goods arrive at the border
  • ensuring officials are empowered to deal with compliance risks at the border
  • reducing the need to repeat due diligence
  • simplifying requirements for low-risk products among other matters.

Provide your feedback

To have your say:

  • read the consultation paper or shorter overview paper
  • take our survey or upload a written submission now

Submit your feedback by 31 August 2021.
