Standards Activity, Updates, and Errata

There are currently no known errata for the 2020 AWPA Book of Standards.
Activity: Spring 2021 Standardization Cycle
The deadline for proposals for the Spring 2021 cycle was December 31, 2020. The AWPA Executive Committee reviewed the proposals received by the deadline and approved the proponent's request for consideration in the Spring. Technical Committee T-4 will be required to meet in the Spring at a time and day yet to be determined.
Activity: Fall 2021 Standardization Cycle
The deadline for proposals for the Fall 2021 cycle is July 14, 2021. All valid proposals received by the deadline will be considered during AWPA's Fall Technical Committee Meetings which will take place September 27-30, 2021 in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
All interested parties are welcome to attend Technical Committee Meetings to discuss the proposals, or to submit written comments during the Committee review and/or General Committee ballot periods. The complete proposals are available to all AWPA members and are found on each committee's page within the members' section of this website. All other persons may request the text of the proposals for consideration during the current cycle by contacting AWPA and designating the exact serial number of each proposal (example: P07 or T24). Those who are not members of a committee considering a particular proposal during letter balloting may submit a Public comment by downloading and using the Public Comment Form (in Microsoft Word format).
Submission of Standardization Proposals
Proposals to create a new standard or to revise, reaffirm, or withdraw a standard may be submitted at any time. The deadline for each Fall standardization cycle is 75 days prior to the commencement of the Fall Technical Committee meetings. While there is no cost to submit a proposal for consideration during the Fall cycle, there may be administrative costs associated with submitting an urgent or time-sensitive proposal for the Spring cycle and calling a special meeting of the committees with jurisdiction. Contact AWPA for more information. Click here to download a standardization proposal form in Microsoft Word format.
