The Muirburn Code provides good practice guidance for burning and cutting of vegetation. It also sets out statutory restrictions and to highlight these, the word ‘MUST’ is used. If these restrictions are not followed, the muirburn activity will be in breach of statute.
Supplementary Information is provided on some topics which may be accessed from the ‘Read more’ link below. The Supplementary Information does not form part of the Muirburn Code but provides technical information and more detail that aims to help practitioners with their prescribed burning. The different sections will be reviewed and updated regularly.
