Scotland Regional Advisory Committee (RAC)
In recent years, Regional Forestry Forums (RFFs) have taken on the more general advisory work that had previously been undertaken by regional advisory committees (RACs). This means that an RAC only needs to be convened if there is a disputed case.
When there is a need to convene an RAC, this will be done by the National Committee for Scotland, in consultation with stakeholders and drawing upon RFF members who are considered the most suitable in terms of their expertise and geographical locality.
Each RFF has 12-15 members, representing economic, environmental and social interests in forestry.
