This report describes the process and outcomes of a thematic review of the soil and water provisions of the Forest Practices Code (1993, hereafter referred to as FPC or FP Code), conducted during 1997-98 by a formal review panel. As part of the ongoing process of management of Forest Practices, administered by the Forest Practices Board (FPB), the FPC is to be periodically reviewed in relation to specific themes and/or provisions. The FPC was originally formulated in 1987 following the establishment of the Forest Practices Act (1985), and was subsequently revised resulting in the 1993 version. A thematic review on Steep Country Harvesting provisions was conducted in 1996 (Technical Working Group report 1997) which has been followed by this current review of soil and water provisions.
