Workshops set for “mislabeled” building materials

The Lumber Association of California and Nevada (LACN) will hold a series of workshops in September and October on “Testing Lumber and Building Materials.” Held in cooperation with the Department of Food and Agriculture, Division of Measurement Standards, the sessions will explore California’s stepped-up inspections of lumberyards for “mislabeled” products, resulting in citations, fines and red-tagging (removing from for-sale inventory). Criteria include panel sizes and thickness.

The workshops will also address how the measurement standards affect LBM manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors.

Workshops run through mid-October and will be held in Rancho Cordova, Redding, Santa Clara, Riverside, Burbank and San Diego. They are open to both LACN member and non-members. For more information on dates and times, visit
