What is the Forest Practices Authority?
The Forest Practices Authority (FPA) is an independent statutory body responsible for administering the Tasmanian forest practices system. The system regulates the management of forest and threatened non-forest vegetation on both public and private land.
The FPA, as an independent advisor, researcher and regulator, has a key role to play in the search for a sustainable future for Tasmania's forests. Set up in 1985 by the Tasmanian Parliament, it has more than 25 years' expertise and experience in developing and implementing the forest practices system.

The FPA is funded by the Tasmanian Government and fees charged for forest practices plans. See the FPA's annual report for more information.
