Wood Industry Releases Weight and Measurement Labeling Guidelines

 Monday, March 2, 2015

indexThe American Wood Council has collaborated with organizations in the lumber industry to release recommended guidelines for Weights and Measurement labeling. The guidelines can be found on the AWC website for reference.
All states have laws and regulations describing how lumber must be labeled in order to protect consumers.
“Concern has been raised recently on how lumber is being labeled for retail sale,” said AWC President and CEO Robert Glowinski. “To assist industry manufacturers in understanding the requirements of NIST Handbook 130, as applied to lumber, we have placed an easily digestible synopsis on our website and encourage the industry to use it as a resource.” He added.
Given the potential variation among individual state requirements, however, manufacturers are strongly encouraged to consult with their own counsel and advisors regarding labeling of their products.
