All Independent Monitoring (IM) organizations that wish to upload information need to register for an account on the Open Timber Portal. Users that want to view information do not need to register. This tutorial provides step-by-step instructions on how to set up an account, edit your profile, and upload and manage reports and
observations.

Reports are formal documents that independent monitors submit at the end of their field investigation. The report format is specific to each IM. Observations are descriptions of suspected non-compliances made by independent monitors in their reports that relate to either an issue of governance or an issue under the control
of a producer.
