AFA Members who work with timber may wish to become part of this program.

Forest and Wood Products Australia (FPWA) has established two groups consisting of FWPA Members, levy payers and stakeholders. The aim is to increase the use of wood-based products through the efficient and effective development and/or maintenance of key standards, codes and handbooks that are developed through a consensus-based process.

These documents may have the authority of an Australian or international standard (if required) or any other format to deliver the appropriate industry outcome. The Standards Reference Group of industry experts provides strategic guidance and direction in the development of Standards. Alternatively, the Standards Industry Network has a wider representation and is available for anyone interested in the industry’s standards.

If you would like to be informed of FWPA standards and codes related activities please send an email to boris.iskra@fwpa.com.au requesting FWPA’s Standards Industry Network.
