ACT NOW!

Although the official deadline to get your Post-1989 ETS application approved is 31st December 2012 (in order to back claim credits back to 2008), MPI have indicated that due to current processing workloads, they may not accept any new applications after end October 2012.  So if you have Post-1989 forest to register – ACT NOW!  Otherwise you may miss out on the first five year’s worth of credits.
