Columbia River Log Scaling & Grading Bureau

Check Scaling

Columbia River regards the uniformity and accuracy of the product supplied by Bureau log scaling personnel to be of primary importance.  For that reason our supervisors perform check scales at least quarterly on our personnel as part of our quality assurance process.  Periodic Check Scales ensure that our log scale remains within the industry defined tolerances set by the Northwest Log Rules Advisory Group. These reports become a part of the permanent records for each log scaler.

Bureau Field Supervisors are held to the highest standards for uniformity, fairness, and quality. They are available by prior arrangement to perform Check Scale reports on company’s scalers and log sellers.  This service can be supplemented with consultation and educational services.  Please contact our Bureau Manager or our Field Supervisor in your area to arrange this support.

Bureau Field Supervisors regularly attend industry sponsored log rollouts, mill studies, and seminars to remain current on industry standards, trends, and concerns.
