ATTENTION Exporters of Ash Lumber to the European Union, NHLA has received an important notice from USDA-APHIS and the European Union.

 

NHLA was officially notified today (December 18, 2018), that the rules for shipping Ash lumber originating from the United States has changed.

 

Effective Today…the only approved option for exporting Ash lumber to the EU is the NHLA KD Certificate Program as proof of treatment to obtain a Phyto-Sanitary Certificate.

 

As announced by USDA-APHIS, “Shipments of Ash lumber certified under the 2.5 cm beneath the bark lumber will be allowed a grace period for the wood already in route.  The last date such a shipment can arrive and gain entry into the EU is February 10, 2019, which should cover any shipments in route, even with delays. The 2.5 cm option for new shipments cannot be used.

 

All Ash originating from the United States and traveling to the European Union must be in the “systems approach”. The “systems approach” is defined below.

 

Shipments must have a PHYTO with the accompanying NHLA KD Certificate with clip ID numbers. The Shipments must also meet all of the following requirements:

 

  • 10% or less in MC
  • Dry bulb temperature must reach 160 degrees F for 20 hours minimum.
  • Lumber must be debarked, small residual pieces less than the size of a credit card are acceptable.
  • Lumber drying time of 14 days, this includes air drying time.
  • Lumber must be stenciled with KD – HT on both ends of the packs. (bottom right corner.)
  • Treatment durations, dry and wet bulb temperatures, and final moisture contents will be recorded for each specific lot, and maintained for a minimum of 3 years.

 

For Canadian Exporters of Ash:

 

The Canadian systems approach that was created more than a year ago is still in effect for Canada. The use of the NHLA Kiln Dried Certification Program is only available to the U.S. based companies, but any lumber transferred between the countries to be further exported to the EU for traceability can also utilize either system to verify treatment with some additional measures.
