Leadies challenge VicForests

Friends of LBP argues that the RFA regime is in place of the EPBC and that the 5-year reviews are an essential part of the framework. If VicForests is contemplating logging that might be caught by the EPBC it has to satisfy itself that the RFA exemption applies. VicForests on the other hand says RFAs are a blanket exemption from the EPBC Act irrespective of whether they have been complied with a little, a lot or not at all.
