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.
