13 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The central objective of this report is to review the Forest Practices Code of British Columbia and numerous other forest practice codes, rules, regulations, and so forth which exist in national and state (or provincial) jurisdictions throughout the world. The purpose is to provide information to code administrators and implementers so that they can identify possible omissions or weaknesses in the code and begin the ongoing process of change and improvement in order for the code to reflect current knowledge. Foreign jurisdictions selected for the study included the United Kingdom, Sweden, Finland, Germany, and states or provinces of the United States, Australia, and Germany. The first part of the report reviews the legal and administrative settings of the codes or regulations examined, including legal framework, authority, incentives, penalties and enforcement, appeals, audits, performance bonds, public input, and worker safety. The second part reviews code provisions on such forest practices as planning, road engineering, site preparation, silviculture prescriptions, species selection, wilderness management, fire management, stocking standards, and soil conservation. The appendix includes information on the forests in the jurisdictions studied

This report evaluates the extent to which logging companies in the Chilliwack and Mid-Coast Forest Districts of British Columbia complied with the Coastal Fisheries Forestry Guidelines in cut blocks logged between 1988 and 1992; the report also assesses the effectiveness of the guidelines when they were applied. The report first describes the methods used to audit compliance with the guidelines, and the characteristics of the cut blocks in the area evaluated. It then examines the impacts on streams of logging activities and discusses causes of specific problems such as debris flows, road failures, and poor cleanup of debris. Finally, the report assesses the effectiveness of streamside management guidelines and the degree of compliance with road and bridge guidelines. An evaluation of overall compliance with the guidelines includes discussion of the relation between compliance and stream impacts

Issues considered in the review included management and licensing, ecological concerns, resource use conflicts, government revenue, harvesting administration, social and economic issues, resource ownership, health/safety and First Nations concerns, and government agency cooperation
