"While you may still need an attorney's advice about specific situations, companies will get much more bang for their legal buck if they have read The Guide first and know what questions to ask.  After all, when you're paying by the hour, you don't want to waste those hours on things about which you could have easily and cost-effectively educated yourself beforehand."

Mandatory Disclaimer: 

This guide is intended to provide guidelines and advice for importers (and foreign exporters) to assist in the entry and sale of logs, lumber, veneer, and other processed wood goods within the United States. Although much of this information should be suitable for the paper industry as well, it is not designed specifically for that product category.

The information provided here is accurate to the best of our knowledge as of the date of printing and is provided in good faith to assist you in navigating through the complexities of the Lacey Act. However it is important to remain up to date on current regulations and requirements. This should not be considered a substitute for professional legal advice. Consult your legal representative, your customs specialists and your trade associations for additional information or clarifications. Use of this guide does not imply or specifically provide any protection against prosecution, nor do the authors assume any liability for the results of your actions in following the advice provided here. 

Finally, self certification by a company regarding the legality of its wood purchases is no guarantee against Federal prosecution under the Lacey Act. It will however, help reduce a company’s likelihood of becoming the target of malicious prosecution and will provide a significant adjunct to any required defense.
