IWPA Amends Core Veneer and Platforms Standard 

Alexandria, Virginia: The  International Wood Products Association (IWPA) Board of Directors unanimously approved an amendment to the current voluntary IWPA "Product Standard for Imported Rotary Core Wood Veneer and Platforms."  The new standard incorporates some slight technical changes related to laps, interior splits, and buckle in rotary veneer and are in response to feedback from importers and end-users.

Alan Hubbard, Co-Chair of the IWPA Veneer Committee, commented: "Continual revisions are necessary to keep up with changes in the industry and to assure that customers' needs and expectations are being met and covered by our voluntary standard." 

IWPA's voluntary standards are well-known in the industry and establish internationally recognized criteria for imported wood products. Copies of the updated Standard for Imported Rotary Cut Wood Veneer and Platforms (IWPA-2012) is available from the IWPA online store (Free downloads for IWPA Members; $15-non-members).
