AWC Standards Addenda

The American Lumber Standard Committee (ALSC) Board of Review approved interim changes to design values for No. 2 Dense and lower grades of visually-graded Southern Pine and No. 2 and lower grades of visually-graded Mixed Southern Pine lumber, 2"- 4" thick, 2"- 4" wide, with a recommended effective date of June 1, 2012.

PLEASE NOTE that the 2013 AWC addenda and the 2013 ICC code amendments supersede the 2012 interim changes. If the 2013 addenda and amendments are used, the 2012 interim addenda and amendments should NOT be used.
