CHPVA members share a common objective, i.e. to promote and support the long term growth of the industry and conserve the precious hardwood resources on which it depends.
In order to maintain the highest standards of product quality and customer service, the Association members adhere to the internationally recognized American National Standard Institute for Hardwood and Decorative Plywood ANSI/HPVA HP-1-2009.
This standard establishes marketing classifications, quality criteria, test methods, grading rules, definitions and product markings and designation practices for hardwood plywood panels.
The standard also provides producers, distributors, architects, contractors, builders and users with a common basis for understanding the characteristics of these products.
In addition to conforming to the ANSI standard, CHPVA members can manufacture to proprietary grades to meet individual customer specifications.
