Regulatory information

Roseburg is committed to and conducts its business activities lawfully and in a manner consistent with compliance obligations. Below you will find general information on some of the commonly requested subjects. For more detailed information, please contact a Roseburg representative.

Lacey Act

Enacted in 1900, the Lacey Act banned trafficking of unlawfully obtained wildlife, fish, and plants. In 2008, the Act was amended to protect a broader range of plant products, including paper and timber. The Lacey Act now, among other things, makes it unlawful to import, export, transport, sell, receive, acquire or purchase interstate or through foreign commerce certain plants and plant products taken or traded in violation of domestic or international laws.

Roseburg is firmly committed to complying with the Lacey Act and the legal trade of wood products. We will not knowingly purchase wood or wood fiber that originates from illegal logging sources. Roseburg has implemented a corporate Lacey Act Compliance Plan and practices "due care" as a means to ensure compliance with applicable wood standards and associated laws.

CAlifornia Proposition 65

California’s Proposition 65, officially known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, requires the Governor to publish a list of chemicals known to the state to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity. The proposition requires businesses to inform Californians about exposures to such chemicals.

California states that no person in the course of doing business shall knowingly and intentionally expose any individual to listed chemicals without first giving clear and reasonable warning to such individual. As a manufacturer, Roseburg Forest Products is hereby informing all customers that wood products (dimension lumber, wood chips, plywood, particleboard, laminated panels, and engineered wood products) may expose individuals to chemicals, such as methanol, and wood dust, both natural components of wood. Any company that offers their products for sale in California or manufactures products in California is required to provide clear and reasonable warnings that must be posted where wood products are offered for sale, displayed, or at the point of sale (i.e., cash register or order counter).

CONFLICT MINERALS

In 2010, Congress passed the Dodd-Frank Act, which directs the Commission to issue rules requiring certain companies to disclose their use of conflict minerals if those minerals are “necessary to the functionality or production of a product” manufactured by those companies. Under the Act, those minerals include tantalum, tin, gold, or tungsten.

Congress enacted Section 1502 of the Act because of concerns that the exploitation and trade of conflict minerals by armed groups is helping to finance conflict in the DRC region and is contributing to an emergency humanitarian crisis. Section 1502 of the Act amends the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934 to add Section 13(p).
