Many licensee interactions with the Ministry are now carried out through electronic transmission of information, through systems known collectively as Electronic Forest Management (e-FM). e-FM includes such applications as FTA, RESULTS and Waste reporting.
Access to these systems requires a BCeID username and password. Every woodlot licensee should obtain a BCeID, if for no other reason than to view and check the RESULTS reporting for their woodlot.

The woodlot licence provides for an allowable annual cut. It is regulated by cut control rules and actions as set out in the Forest Act and the Cut Control Regulation. Cut controls ensure that the volume of timber harvested under the licence is consistent with its harvesting rights.

The Woodlot Licence CP Reminders List document provides guidance to help licencees meet their pre and post-harvest obligations. The checklist is found on pages 22 – 23. It has been prepared by the FBCWA for woodlot licensees and may not list every commitment or obligation on every licence. Licensees are encouraged to amend it to meet their own circumstances.
