Summary

The Division of Forest Products was established in 1928, part of the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), now the CSIRO. In 1971 the Division was broken up, becoming part of both the Division of Building Research and the Division of Applied Chemistry.

The Division of Forest Products was transferred to form part of the Division of Forestry and Forest Products at the end of 1987. The remainder combined with the Division of Energy Technology (Vic) to
form the Division of Construction and Engineering which commenced
operations from 1 January 1988.
