The Government is committed to the sustainable management of South Africa's forests. In 1998 the Government published the National Forests Act, 1998 (Act No. 84 of 1998). Section 3 of the National Forests Act (NFA) recommends the development of a set of Principles, Criteria, Indicators and Standards (P, C, I & S's) for Sustainable Forest Management (SFM). The Government will use the PCI&S to monitor progress towards sustainable forest management and may set minimum regulatory standards for forestry.
