TAPPI Standards, Technical Information Papers (TIPS) and Useful Methods

Are you interested in reviewing or submitting TAPPI Standards, TIPs or Useful Methods? There are many ways to get involved at various levels of commitment.

You can:

TAPPI Standards

TAPPI Standards* are developed through the consensus of a technical working group acting in accordance with the procedures described in our guidelines. 

We publish 4 types of TAPPI Standards:

  • Test methods
  • Specifications
  • Guidelines
  • Glossaries

TAPPI Test Methods are testing procedures. We use 6 different categories for our Test Methods: Official Method, Provisional Method, Standard Practice, Classical Method, Withdrawn Method, and Useful Method (UM). Learn more about these 6 categories.

Our Standards may also include certain information that are not directly related to our Test Methods, such as technical information and definitions. This information is found in our SpecificationsGuidelines and Glossaries. These documents comply with TAPPI Standards regulations in their development and approval.

Learn more on how to submit or review TAPPI Standards.

TAPPI Technical Information Papers (TIPs)

TAPPI Technical Information Papers (TIPs) are documents containing specialized information (e.g., data, software, calculations) used in the manufacture, evaluation and description of pulp, paper, and related products, written in a standardized format which is readily useable by the industry.

Technical Information Papers may contain testing procedures or methods used to evaluate equipment but do not contain pulp and paper testing procedures or test methods.

Learn more about how to submit or review TAPPI TIPs.

TAPPI Useful Methods (UMs)

Useful Methods (UMs) describe tests, procedures, or practices written in the same general style as a Standard, but without the vigorous precision requirements. Because they do not qualify as Standards, UMs do not undergo the same review-by-consensus process.

Learn more on how to submit TAPPI UMs.


*TAPPI does not engage in activities or publish Standards that could lead to standardization of products or services in ways that would reduce competition, impede the development of improvements to those products or services, or would result in a stabilization of costs for those products or services.
