197. The forest protection organization prepares, in accordance with the Minister’s requirements, a framework plan for the protection of forests against destructive insects and cryptogamic diseases in the area for which it is certified. The plan must define the area to be protected and state, among other things, the number of people, the equipment and the means the organization intends to use to prepare and implement action plans.
The plan is submitted to the Minister for approval within the time determined by the Minister, who may approve it with or without changes. If the organization fails to send the Minister the plan within the prescribed time, the Minister establishes the plan at the expense of the organization or its members.
The organization must keep the plan up to date until a new plan is required by the Minister. Updates of the plan and any changes are submitted for approval to the Minister.
