Chain Saws Act, B.E. 2545 (2002)

The reason for the proclamation of this Act at the present time is for the conservation of, and to maintain, the current Forest resources, especially through the prevention and suppression of illegal deforestation carried out through use of a chain saw, which is widely used to cut wood and saw timber. Although measures have already established laws in The Kingdom, there is smuggling of chain saws into The Kingdom for use in deforestation, necessitating a law to control the illegal chain saw possession and importation into the Kingdom.
