In Compliance:
a ‘positive’ assessment provided to an operation or activity as to its status
after consideration of all applicable laws, regulations, manuals, rules and
requirements. All inspected activities are consistent with standards. For
reporting purposes, compliant activities will include matters, which have been
assessed as less than perfect due to operational problems and accompanied
by a clear explanation and rationale.


IN Compliance With Comments (ICWC),
is a status given to inspections, which are assessed to be not fully compliant
but not severe enough to warrant a non-compliant status. While still
considered to be infractions, they are characterized as being of a minor
nature or a minor variance to standards without compromising the intent or
integrity of the standard or value being protected. Such assessment is
considered reasonable under certain circumstances in consideration of such
things as complexity of forest operations, geography and physical conditions.
In all cases, the compliance inspector must provide clear rationale for such
assessments and indicate that measures can be taken to improve or
overcome such issues in the future. Reports of ICWC are ‘counted’ in the
totals for compliant reports.


Not In Compliance (or Non-Compliance):
a ‘negative’ assessment provided to an operation or activity as to its status
after consideration of all applicable laws, regulations, manuals, rules and
requirements. One or more activities are found to be contrary to applicable
laws, regulations, manuals, rules and requirements or standards.

There Are two types of Issues
1. Compliance
    Compliance Issues are issues raised in response to an Activity that is
    not compliant. For every non-compliant activity, an issue must be
    created.



2. Task
     Task Issues are used to help you/Industry keep track of tasks that
     need to be done. They can be created for any activity. This
     applies only to In Compliance and In compliance with
     comments
