Product & Quality Management

Wood has a lighter carbon footprint compared to other materials.

We are committed to producing and delivering a quality product and, as such, take steps to ensure standards are consistently met. West Fraser maintains many additional product quality standards and certifications specific to each of the products we produce.

For information about our environmental performance quality management, see Environmental Management Systems.


Our lumber is graded in compliance with the NLGA (National Lumber Grades Authority) and the NGR (National Grading Rules) which are accredited by the ALS (American Lumber Standard) and CLS (Canadian Lumber Standard). Each piece of lumber is grade-stamped showing the grade of lumber, the dryness, the mills' designated number and the accredited agency, which in turn performs routine grading checks to ensure the product meets or exceeds all standards.
