American Wood Protection Association
The American Wood Protection Association (AWPA) is a non-profit organization which promulgates voluntary wood preservation standards. AWPA
Standards are developed by its technical committees in an ANSI accredited consensus-based process that involves individuals from all facets of
wood preservation: Producers of preservatives and preservative
components; producers of treated and untreated wood products; end
users of treated wood; engineers, architects and building code
officials; government entities, academia, and other groups with a
general interest in wood preservation. AWPA's Standards are
universally specified for wood preservation in the USA,
and are recognized worldwide. More>
