03.12.2020 − 

On 20 October, Stora Enso received approval (ESR-4381) from the ICC Evaluation Service for the US market for cross-laminated timber (CLT) manufactured at the Ybbs facility in Austria. The approval is also linked with accordance with the provisions of the International Building Code (IBC) and confirmation that the production complies with the North American standard for performance-rated cross-laminated timber (ANSI/APA PRG 320-2019). Stora Enso has also completed the amendments to ESR-4381 for the state of California and the city of Los Angeles. The ICC’s ESL-1170 report, also published on 20 October, also confirms compliance with the National Building Code of Canada 2015, enabling Stora Enso to put CLT on the market not only in the USA but also in Canada in future.
