1 ITEMS TO BE COLLECTED BEFORE the INDUSTRIAL TECHNICAL INSPECTION A FOREST-BASED INDUSTRY
1.1 Environmental licenses
1.1.1. Data to be observed in the environmental license
-Conditions in the environmental permit;
-Duration, objectives and if contains erasure;
-Start date of the operation;
-Operational capacity installed.
1.2 Federal Technical Register-CTF
1.2.1. Data to be recorded
-Annual report presented by the company;
-Start date of the operation;
-Installed operational capacity;
-Size of the company;
-Consumption of forest raw material;
-Quantity of product produced;
-Data on production of the analysis period established;
-Certificate of regularity.
1.3 Electronic System for Forest Control
1.3.1. Data to be recorded in the report of forest product source for the analysis period established.
-Input Volume of forest products (log, firewood, charcoal) in the courtyard of the company;
-Forest products output volume (if applicable);
-Volume Balance of forest products at the industrial inspection date;
-Sales Volume of forest byproducts (milled wood by degree of industrialization, charcoal etc.);
-Balance of forest byproducts in industrial inspection date.
1.3.2. items to be observed in the electronic control system of forest products
-Amount of electronic control instrument received by the company;
-Amount of electronic control instrument issued by the company.
2. ITEMS TO BE OBSERVED IN INDUSTRIAL INSPECTION
-When arriving in the company the team should identify, request the presence of the owner or responsible for the same.
-He should not perform work of cubage and production line inspection, as well as collecting data outside of the area of the office, without the presence of the company representative, except in situations where it does not designate a responsible.
Documents to be requested and the items to be observed in the office
-Request the Environmental Licenses for data crossing, item 1.1 with the CTF listed in item 1.2.
-Specifically how much the environmental license check compliance with the conditions in the environmental permit, if the environmental license is within its validity period, so as your goals and if it contains erasure and if the activity is being carried on in accordance with the documentation.
-Provide electronic control instruments reports issued and received, as well as Invoices and schedule for the purpose of cross-checking information with each other, taking into account the data of the items 1.3.1 and 1.3.2, constants in this electronic control instrument (for the period under study).
-Observe whether there has been the marketing of species with restriction of use (e.g. chestnut and mahogany).
-Request data on energy consumption (light accounts, fuel consumption etc.) for the intersection of information between monthly energy consumption and monthly production.
-Check if the size of the company matches the production company to make sure that it is compatible with what is described in CTF.
3. SURVEY of STOCKYARD of FOREST PRODUCTS
3.1 Conduct the Cubage of firewood, coal and the whole timber in logs of the industry yard by species.
3.2 Formulas for cubing of wood logs
The environmental agency must adopt the geometric method for log space, using Smalian’s formula.
V = [(db2.p/4)+(d1a-p/4)]/2;L or V=0;7854.[Db+D+1+)/2]2.L
V = volume in m3
L = Length of the log in meters
Db = base diameter of the log in meters (obtained from the average of the largest and smallest diameter in cross- section).
dt = top diameter of the log in meters (obtained from the average of the highest and lowest diameter in cross- section).
Note: the volume will be calculated with or without bark according to control established by the competent environmental agency.
3.3 Individual measurement of sawn timber. The competent environmental agency, in line with the business sector, will establish procedures for storage and metering of forest products.
The competent environmental agency will admit variation in total volume of up to 10 more or less.
4. COEFFICIENT of VOLUMETRIC EFFICIENCY
4.1 Find in the electronic control system the volumetric efficiency coefficients adopted.
4.2 Verify that the coefficient of volumetric yield of the company conforms with the technical study presented, respecting the confidence interval.
4.3 Raise data about industry production, in order to confront with the yield coefficient for the product in question (ex: wood Stereo consumed for each thousand of bricks, mdc of coal for every ton of pig iron etc.)
5. PRODUCTION LINE
-Check if there is a control input measurement of forest products (logs, firewood, charcoal) at the time of pitsawing/consumption and request data or spreadsheets.
-Check if there is a measurement of production control in relation to the pitsawing of the log and request data or spreadsheets.
-Check if there is a control of the measurement of production of products from the consumption of sawn benefitted timber (furniture, construction etc.). Compare with the yield coefficient of the company.
-Check if there is a control of the measurement of production of products from the firewood consumption (tiles, bricks, tons of dried beans etc) and request data or spreadsheets.
Compare with the coefficient of efficiency of the company.
– Check if there is a control of the measurement of production of products from coal consumption (pig iron, industrialized/bagged coal etc.) and request data or worksheets. Compare with the coefficient of efficiency of the company.
– Observe closely the whole machinery for annotations in the forestry inspection form.
6. CONSIDERATIONS TO BE PERFORMED AFTER THE INDUSTRIAL INSPECTION OF A LOGGING COMPANY
Finally, after crossing all related data and obtaining the results and conclusions, present the detailed report of the work carried out in the company with the appropriate recommendations forwarding a copy to the company.
