The Forests & Forest Industry Council of Tasmania

About the FFIC

The Forests & Forest Industry Council (FFIC) is formed from associations with an interest in forest and land use issues.

The FFIC was created in 1989, in part in response to the decisions made following the Helsham Inquiry, and partly as a condition of the Labor-Green Accord.

The FFIC went on to create the Forests and Forest Industry Strategy of 1990 and played a significant role in the annual forest debates about export quotas for woodchips, Recommended Areas for Protection, the formation of the Public Land Use Commission, and the development of the Regional Forest Agreement.

The FFIC continues today with a dual role - the original FFIC as the peak body providing external advice to governments, and as an Industry Council under the Industry Audit process initiated by the current State Government.
