American Lumber Standard Committee, Incorporated (ALSC) provides periodic notification of stamps that are not from an accredited American Lumber Standard Committee agency. Given this evaluation, there are no corresponding ALSC approved design values attributable to this lumber. This lumber then should not be represented as a structural lumber product with design values defined by the American Softwood Lumber Standard PS 20 under the ALSC oversight system. Please review the following grade marks, and if you have seen any of these, please provide that information to Mr. David Kretschmann, President ALSC at alsc@alsc.org or by calling 301-972-1700.
