Web-Based Tenure Applications

Most business interactions between forest licensees and MFR staff are now conducted electronically.  Cutting permit applications, scale data submissions, and silviculture reporting are examples where electronic submissions have replaced paper.  Here are direct links to the most commonly used computer applications that forest licensees and government staff may use to facilitate electronic submissions.  Generally, users of these applications must have a BCeID (non-government users) or IDIR (government users) account.  A link to the BCeID site is also provided below.  Many of the applications require additional permissions that are granted by the particular system administrator.  For example, if you are submitting an FSP through the FSPTS, you need a business BCEID and "submitter" level access in the FSPTS.  Directions on how to get the appropriate level of access are provided on the home pages of each of the systems.

To check which permissions your account has, use the ADAM system (Authority Delegation and Management) system available at the following location: https://apps.nrs.gov.bc.ca/ext/adam-for/welcome.do
