|Fiji national code of logging practice|
Based on pre-operational site inspection a logging plan has to be drawn up for approval by the forest officer controlling the operation. The logging plan includes a contour map of a scale of 1:10 000 which shows haulage roads, main skid tracks, landings, streams and steam crossings, buffer strips and protected sites.
In addition to the provisions of the code the Forest Department has drawn up a standard format of a logging inspection report to check compliance with the logging plan during or after termination of the operation.
In order to overcome difficulties in providing suitable contour maps cartographic assistance has been made available through Australian aid.
