According to Decree no. 59, permits for exporting logs (customs tariff: 4403) and rotary-peeled masts (customs tariff: 4404) must be applied for at the forest ministry.

The Decree came into force on 1 February and applies until 31 July 2018.

Besides Belarus, the member of the Eurasian Economic Union, founded in 2014, are Russia, Kazakhstan, Armenia, and Kirgizia.
