When the American Lumber Standards Committee (ALSC) Board of Review considers the Southern Pine Inspection Bureau’s (SPIB) recommended design value changes to all sizes of Southern Yellow Pine (SYP) on January 30, 2013, SBCA, along with other interested parties, will be advocating for a transition period in line with the precedent ALSC established when approving SYP design value changes in January 2012.

While SBCA is  in the process of developing a series of documents and tools to help component manufacturers (CM) understand and benefit from the design value change process, in the interim SBCA encourages all its CM members to review the analysis  and best practices roadmap, including contractual considerations, developed during the last SP design value change transition period.
