The production of glued laminated timbers for structural uses requires a high level of quality control in its manufacture. The U. S. Commercial Standard CS 253-63 was developed to provide a uniform method of quality control in the industry. This standard provides for quality control by procedural requirements for production, performance tests of the finished product, and visual inspection of the finished product. It also requires supervision of quality control by a central organization. The American Institute of Timber Construction provides the services of a central organization with its Inspection Bureau.
