Agency requirements.

(1) Designation of export restricted timber.
(a) Each agency managing public lands subject to this chapter shall designate timber sales to be sold as export restricted and as exportable. Pursuant to an order issued by the Secretary of Commerce of the United States for calendar years 1992 and 1993, each agency shall designate as export restricted, sales that include 75 per cent of the volume of unprocessed timber from such agency's annual sales program, excluding Western Red Cedar. This percentage shall remain in effect until revised by order of the Secretary of Commerce of the United States under section 491(a) of the Forest Resources Conservation and Shortage Relief Act of 1990 (Public Law 101-382). Sales designated as export restricted shall be distributed proportionately throughout the geographical area of land owned or managed by the agency. Timber originating from sales designated as export restricted shall be representative of the species and grade distribution of the agency's sale program.
(b) Designation of timber sales as export restricted and as exportable shall be on a sale by sale basis and shall apply to the entire sale being considered; except that a sale shall be subdivided into portions that are export restricted and exportable if there are insufficient sales in the annual sales program to insure that designation on a sale by sale basis meets the applicable requirements of the Forest Resources Conservation and Shortage Relief Act of 1990 (Public Law 101-382).
(2) Report to the governor. By March 31 of each year, each agency selling timber from public lands shall report to the governor on the results of its sales program in compliance with the Forest Resources Conservation and Shortage Relief Act (Public Law 101-382) for the preceding calendar year. The report shall include information on the volume, species, grade, and geographical distribution of sales sold as export restricted and not export restricted.
(3) Reports on the purchase of timber. Not later than five days after the receipt of a Purchaser Certification furnished to an agency under WAC 240-15-025, the agency shall submit a copy of such certification to the Washington department of revenue. The agency shall make copies of such reports available to the public at reasonable times and locations.
(4) Contract provisions. Agencies contracting for the sale of export restricted timber from public lands shall include in such contracts clauses incorporating the applicable requirements of WAC 240-15-015 (relating to the prohibitions on export and substitution), WAC 240-15-025 (relating to reporting requirements), and WAC 240-15-030 (relating to enforcement). In addition, such contracts shall include clauses which provide that a violation by the purchaser of the prohibitions under WAC 240-15-025 (relating to the prohibitions on export and substitution) shall be sufficient cause for the agency to cancel the contract.
(5) Prohibition on accepting bids from ineligible purchasers. Agencies shall not accept bids for sales of export restricted timber from persons included on the list of ineligible purchasers published by the department of revenue under this chapter.
(6) List of ineligible purchasers. Agencies contracting for the sale of export restricted timber from public lands shall attach to such contracts a copy of the most recent list of ineligible purchasers published by the department of revenue.
