Finishing Carpentry Installation: Draft AWI / ANSI Standard Nears Canvassing

As the first step in the certification of the much-anticipated suite of standards, the team at the AWI National Testing Center (NTC) in Americus, GA is proud to announce that the first standard in the series, AWI 0620 – Finishing Carpentry Installation, will soon begin the American National Standards Institute (ANSI)-approved canvassing process.

For several months, the AWI standards development team has been working alongside the Technical Committee, a group of professionals with prior standards development experience and expertise in their respective fields, to ensure that, once published, the standards will effectively meet the needs of AWI’s member organizations.

AWI Technical Director Ashley Goodin stated, “We are very excited here at the NTC to be preparing to take the next step towards getting ANSI certification for this standard. It’s taken a lot of hard work to get to this point and we’re eager to complete the process.”

In the coming months, even more standards are expected to be ready to begin the canvassing process, including AWI 0641 – Casework and AWI 1236 – Countertops.
