Why do you conduct audits?

The Forest Practices Board conducts audits of government and agreement-holders under section 122 of the Forest and Range Practices Act and section 68 of the Wildfire Act. Compliance audits examine forest or range planning and practices to determine whether or not they comply with the applicable requirements of Forest and Range Practices Act and the Wildfire Act. The Board conducts 6-8 compliance audits annually. Most of these are audits of agreement holders. The Board also audits the government’s BC Timber Sales Program.
