The North American Association of Floor Covering Distributors (NAFCD) is partnering with the International Wood Products Association (IWPA) to host IWPA’s Wood Trade Compliance Week February 24-27, 2020, in Nashville, Tennessee. The week-long event will provide wood industry executives and compliance professionals with a comprehensive analysis of the requirements of the Lacey Act and other laws relevant to trade in wood products.
“IWPA developed the due diligence training and resources for wood trade professionals to empower the wood products industry and provide them with the tools they need to successfully fulfill their role in sourcing decisions,” said IWPA Executive Director Cindy Squires. “There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to sourcing and compliance. These due diligence tools reflect the legal requirements and the industry’s need for flexibility to adjust their corporate standards and procedures based on the particular specifications of their product, the country of origin and the complexity of their supply chain.”
The cost to attend is $225 for full day courses and $115 for half day courses for IWPA members and $729 for full day courses and $419 for half day courses for nonmembers. NAFCD members will receive a 20% discount.
