Issues & Developments

IWPA is the only association in the United States committed to the promotion and enhancement of legal and sustainable trade in the imported hardwood and softwood products industry. IWPA actively represents the interests of the imported wood products industry before international trade organizations, Congress, the federal government, state legislatures and regulators, and municipal governments.

"Over the years, I have had to call on IWPA with questions about new regulations and pending legislation impacting our industry and each time they have answered my questions in a timely and thorough manner".     Cynthia N. Newman, Newman Lumber Company, Gulfport, Mississippi

IWPA staff plays an active role in issues related to the Convention on Trade in Endangered Species (CITES); Free Trade Agreements and Trade Preference Programs like the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP); Customs classifications and duties; Solid Wood Packing Material (SWPM) regulations; and port security.
