ASTM International has revised two standards recently, one related to PVC and the other to architectural woodwork.

The Architectural Woodwork Institute (AWI) has updated BSR/AWI-AWIS1-201x, Architectural Woodwork and Interiors Standards—a new standard. Stakeholders include architectural millwork and component manufacturers, architects, specifiers, design professionals, conformance assessment programs, building owners and end users of encompassed products.

The standard seeks to provide for consistent communication, specification, conformance assessment, quality, and performance measures for the architectural woodwork and interiors industry.

The standard will provide for aesthetic and performance measures for architectural millwork and associated products and services. The complete scope of the standard will encompass areas of general millwork, including those of wood products and related components such as integrated door systems and other associated components. The installation and finishing of these products is also included.

BSR/ASTM D4726-201x, Specification for Rigid Poly(Vinyl Chloride) (PVC) Exterior-Profile Extrusions Used for Assembled Windows and Doors is a revision of ANSI/ASTM D4726-2009.
