At its January meeting, the AWI board of directors decided it was time to take the association’s standards development to a higher level by becoming an American National Standards Institute accredited standards developer.
Accordingly, the AWI announced in November it was accepted as an organizational member within the ANSI community and on Aug. 15 received official approval as a standards developer.
“AWI’s technical committee is actively working on the association’s next generation of standards writing. Procedures for ANSI approved standards development will further AWI’s ongoing initiative to expand interaction with stakeholders of the industry it serves,” the trade group said in statement.
