IWPA Announces February Wood Trade Compliance Training Courses in High Point, North Carolina

The International Wood Products Association (IWPA) is excited to announce that we are partnering with the American Home Furnishings Alliance (AHFA) to host a series of our Wood Trade Compliance Training and Due Diligence Tools courses – Wood Trade Compliance Training, Advanced Wood Trade Compliance Training, and Audits for the Wood Trade Professional – February 11-13 in High Point, North Carolina. These courses feature hands on exercises and insights to arm professionals buying and selling wood products with the latest information to help them comply with the Lacey Act and other important laws relevant to the trade in wood products.

Recently updated, the Advanced Wood Trade Compliance Training course will walk participants through the Lacey Act settlement agreements including the Young Living settlement. In addition, this course provides an overview of the Enforce and Protect Act and duty circumvention cases. Sign up for only one class or the whole series. IWPA and AHFA members receive preferred pricing.

Pending the partial federal government shutdown, limited travel funding is available to attend these courses for qualifying small- and mid-sized companies from the U.S. Forest Service. Please contact Mary Saenz for more information.
