Illegal Logging Laws: Extension to ‘soft-start’ compliance period
The report proposed a package of regulatory and non-regulatory reforms to minimise the costs of complying with the Regulation.
In light of this process and the potential for further changes to the Regulation, the department has decided to extend the initial ‘soft-start’ compliance period until any amendments from the KPMG review have been finalised. This is expected to extend the soft-start period until late 2016 or early 2017.
A further Compliance Advice Notice will be released to advise when the ‘soft-start’ compliance period will end.
