The Ministerial Decree No. 174/2020 (2 pages, in Arabic) mandating the Egyptian Standard ES 8350-3 for "Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL)- Bonding quality - Part 3: specification" (9 page(s), in Arabic)

The Ministerial Decree No. 174/2020 (2 pages, in Arabic) that gives the producers and importers a six-month transitional period to abide by the Egyptian standard.

This standard specifies the requirements for Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) for general purposes and structural applications, in dry, tropical-dry/humid or high humidity/exterior conditions. Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) is a general description for an assembly of veneers laminated with an adhesive, in which the grain direction of the outer veneers and most other veneers is in the longitudinal direction. Worth mentioning is that this standard is technically identical with ISO 18776/2008 Amd.1:2013 (confirmed in 2018).
