Standards Review Schedule and Status

Standards are of high importance in the pulp, paper and converting industries as they have a huge impact on business and trade. All our members in good standing are eligible, and encouraged, to join a Standards review group or participate in the voting process for Standards currently in ballot. 

Get involved by joining one of these groups below:

Standards Advisory Review Group

The Standards Advisory Review Group (SARG) meets twice a year to act on Standards in the final stage of review. The agenda is posted 30 days in advance on our website. Any member who wants to participate may attend in person or by phone. We especially encourage members to get involved if they have particular concerns or issues regarding the methods being reviewed.

Review Schedule for TAPPI Standards
