APA Activates ANSI A190.1 Committee
May 2021—As an American National Standards developer accredited by American National Standards Institute (ANSI), APA is activating APA Standards Committees for the revision of ANSI A190.1, Standard for Wood Products — Structural Glued Laminated Timber. ANSI A190.1 has been adopted by the International Residential Code (IRC) and International Building Code (IBC) in the U.S. for many years. The APA standards committees are operated under the consensus process approved by ANSI, which requires transparent, openness and balanced interest. The committee membership is open to all interested parties under the categories of manufacturer, supplier, user and general interest. Those interested in joining the APA standards committee should contact BJ Yeh by June 30, 2021.
