Public review of TAPPI test methods.

The system for review and development of TAPPI Test Methods requires an announcement of review dates for methods so that any interested TAPPI members may access the drafts and submit comments.

Listed below are the methods that will be up for review from January 2005 through June 2005. The date indicated is the date on which the draft will be posted for review by TAPPI members in the Members Only section of the TAPPI website. Go to the home page (, log on with your member ID and password, then click "My TAPPI." When your personal page appears, click on the "Test Method Public Review" link on the left-hand side. You do not have to be a member of the Standard Specific Interest Group for any method in order to comment on the draft.

If you have joined the Standard Specific Interest Group for any of these methods, you will receive a notice for ballot at the proper time with instructions for casting your vote and making your comments. If you wish to join the Standard Specific Interest Group for a particular method, please contact Charles Bohanan at TAPPI (, or phone +1 770 209-7276 or fax +1 770 446-6947).
