TAPPI Standards

TAPPI Standards*are developed through the consensus of atechnical working groupacting in accordance with the procedures described in our guidelines.

We publish 4 types of TAPPI Standards:

  • Test methods
  • Specifications
  • Guidelines
  • Glossaries

TAPPITest Methods正在测试程序。我们使用6种不同的测试方法:官方方法,临时方法,标准实践方法,经典方法,撤回方法和有用方法(UM)。Learn moreabout these 6 categories.

Our Standards may also include certain information that are not directly related to our Test Methods, such as technical information and definitions. This information is found in ourSpecifications,GuidelinesandGlossaries. These documents comply with TAPPI Standards regulations in their development and approval.

TAPPI Technical Information Papers (TIPs)

TAPPI Technical Information Papers(TIPs) are documents containing specialized information (e.g., data, software, calculations) used in the manufacture, evaluation and description of pulp, paper, and related products, written in a standardized format which is readily useable by the industry.

Technical Information Papersmay contain testing procedures or methods used to evaluate equipment but do not contain pulp and paper testing procedures or test methods.

TAPPI Useful Methods (UMs)

Useful Methods(UMs) describe tests, procedures, or practices written in the same general style as a Standard, but without the vigorous precision requirements. Because they do not qualify as Standards, UMs do not undergo the same review-by-consensus process.

ANSI Certification

Since 2009, we have been certified by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) as an American National Standards development organization. This means that our procedures adhere to the standards set by ANSI in terms of openness, balance, public announcements, and due process. As a result our standards are considered as American National Standards.
