References and Technical Information

Have a question about treated wood or AWPA's Standards? You've come to the right place. Since AWPA is a consensus-based voluntary standards writing body, we may not be able to make recommendations for specific brand-named products or provide health and safety information.  There are other organizations that can do that.  If we cannot answer your question, we will do our best to point you in the right direction.

The links below and the Quick Links to the right will lead you to various pages within our site that contain technical information pertaining to our Standards, and to a limited extent, general information regarding treated wood and wood protection.
