Swedish Regulations for Timber Measurement are adopted by the Biometria Board on the basis of recommendations from RMR (Council for Measurement and Reporting). The documentation for RMR is prepared by the Biometria department for development and IT. In certain cases, the Swedish regulations are supplemented with business-related regulations.
Timber measurement in Sweden is regulated by special legislation, the Swedish Timber Measurement Act. This Act and the regulations of the Swedish Forest Agency (SKSFS 2014:11) on timber measurement form a fundamental regulatory framework for timber measurement and timber reporting in Sweden.
Regulations and instructions concerning checks and follow-up are briefly described in each measurement regulations document and in separate documents.
