Find Your Standard

APA Guidelines Find Your Standard

Just a few simple steps will take you to the right standard you need

Start by indicating the type of user you are – architect or specifier, builder or end user. Then, select your engineered wood product and how you want to use it. Is it for floors, walls, roofing or even in a non-structural application?. For a specific performance characteristic, choose from the drop down list.

That’s all we need to know to quickly build your list of the key EU and UK constuction standards for that specific product and application. The selection tool also helps manufacturers quickly make sure they have complied with the required standards.

For an alternative way of selecting, see our  Standards by Category section here
