Apply Online (LEXIS)

The Log Exemption Information System (LEXIS) allows companies to apply on-line and receive exemptions and permits through a secure internet site and/or email. We recommend using Internet Explorer for best functionality in LEXIS.

Obtaining Access to LEXIS

Whether you are entering your exemption applications directly into LEXIS or submitting a group of XML files through the Electronic Submission Framework (ESF), you need to be granted access to LEXIS.

To gain access, email the following information to Provincial.Log.Export.Analyst@gov.bc.ca:

  • Your BCeID. Many industry users will already have one for use with other ministry applications such as FTA, RESULTS or ECAS in which case you can also use it for LEXIS. If not, you can search for your company within the BCeID Online Business Directory. Then, contact the Profile or Account Manager listed for your company to request access. If your company is not found, follow the registration process to obtain a Business BCeID.
  • Your name, email address and telephone number.
  • Your company name and the ministry client number for the company. Again, many industry users will already have a client number, in which case it too can be used for LEXIS

Once the information is processed you will receive an email notice stating your access to LEXIS is active.
