Standards Backlog

The TAPPI Standards team has started an intense and focused work to update the backlog on the review of Standards. Until September 18, 2020, the team is going to update all the late items that have any actions pending. The team members will be limiting the participation in other activities to get to focus on the backlog work. The U.S. TAG Administration to ISO/TC 6 has been temporarily transferred from Priscila Briggs to Shayne Nicholas until this focused work finishes. Final drafts of TIPs submitted to TAPPI, however, will continue to be published during this time.

STAR Member of the Month postponed

Due to the focused work on the Standards backlog, the section STAR Member of the Month, initially scheduled to begin this month, has been postponed to the September issue.

Propose a New Standard or Technical Information Paper (TIP)

Getting started is easy. Do you have just a general idea for a Standard, or are you farther along and have a substantial draft? If you just have a general idea for a Standard or TIP, let TAPPI Standards Department know! TAPPI will review your idea and identify an appropriate committee or group to work on your suggestion. If you have an initial idea or if you are further along, send your idea or an initial draft to From there, the TAPPI Standards Manager will guide you through the appropriate process to finalize and approve the new document.     

TAPPI Standards guidelines require that all TAPPI members receive notification of any proposed new Standard or TIPs. This message is being sent to you because you are a TAPPI member; have purchased TIPs or Standards products from TAPPI; or because you have previously expressed interest in this topic.
