USG Corporation – Overcoming Environmental Barriers to Export

For more than 100 years, USG Corporation has built an ever-growing portfolio of groundbreaking products used to help architects, contractors and workers alike to not only build better structures, but to build a better world. The Baltimore facility of USG is in Curtis Bay, Maryland and employs 242 people.

Situation:
USG had negotiated and contracted with customers in Taiwan for new sales resulting in export opportunities. In order to export to customers in Taiwan, the company needed to apply for a Green Label Certification for the Baltimore facility through Taiwan’s Green Council (TABC – Taiwan Architect Building Material Center). To obtain this label, USG was required to provide certification and documentation of compliance with local environmental regulations and policies. USG contacted the Maryland MEP, a NIST MEP affiliate, to request assistance in navigating the State and Federal process to obtain the proper and necessary documentation.

Solution:
The Maryland MEP engineer assigned to the project was able to work with USG to obtain the TABC requirements for obtaining the Green Label. USG then contracted with Maryland MEP to research the environmental compliance reports, document any findings/deficiencies and provide a certified and notarized report that the organization was currently in good standing with the Federal and State environmental organizations.
