Revision of ANSI Standard for Hardwood and Decorative Plywood.

The process to revise the ANSI/HPVA HP-1-2000 Standard for Hardwood and Decorative Plywood has been officially initiated by filing and publication of the required notice through ANSI. A list of issues has also been compiled and the Hardwood Plywood & Veneer Association (HPVA) Technical Committee has held discussions and developed proposed revisions to address some of the listed items. Items completed include additional separate grade tables for door faces, and the integration of several additional species into the tables. At its last regular meeting in Vancouver BC, in the fall of 2002, the Technical Committee established a standard revision task group which will make a concentrated effort to move the process forward by completion of the drafting of proposed revisions for the remaining items. HPVA staff will attend a meeting of the WHPP (Western Hardwood Plywood Producers) this December to get their input on proposed revisions. A subsequent meeting of the standard revision task group is being organized for next February. The goal of the task group will be to complete a draft of proposed revisions to present to the HPVA Technical Committee for approval at the Greensboro, NC meeting next April. Once approved by the Technical Committee the proposed revisions will be ready to send out for the official ANSI canvass letter ballot. The canvass group list is currently in the process of being updated in preparation for the ballot. Those interested should contact HPVA with any suggested revisions to be considered, or suggested names for inclusion on the canvass list, or with any questions about the standard revision process.
