Draft Scope/Description:

Scope

1.1

This Standard specifies the minimum certification requirements for the manufacture of metal-plate-connected wood trusses in order to enable wood truss manufacturers to demonstrate conformance with industry standards. 

1.2

In CSA Standards, “shall” is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the standard; “should” is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; “may” is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the standard.

Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material.

Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements.

Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (non-mandatory) to define their application.

1.3

This Standard is written in SI (metric) units. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
