43.1.1. An agreement holder may, with no further formality than that described in the third paragraph, send timber harvested during the year which, under the agreement, was intended for the agreement holder’s wood processing plant to other processing plants operating under a timber supply and forest management agreement; the sum of the volumes of timber that may be sent to other processing plants during a given year may not exceed the volume of timber determined by regulation of the Government.
The sum of the volumes of timber from other wood processing plants operating under a timber supply and forest management agreement that are sent to the processing plant referred to in the agreement holder’s agreement during a given year may not exceed the volume of timber determined by regulation of the Government. Additional volumes of timber equal to the volumes of timber that the agreement holder may have sent to other processing plants under the first paragraph may be added to that volume.
The agreement holder must, beforehand, submit to the approval of the Minister any modification to the annual management plan, specifying the wood processing plant or plants to which the timber is to be sent and the volume of timber of the species or groups of species sent to each. After making sure the change in destination is in conformity with this section, the Minister shall approve the annual plan and modify the management permit accordingly.
Volumes of timber whose destination was changed under section 43.2 are not taken into account in calculating volumes of timber under this section.
