Tropical Timber standardisation

ATIBT intervenes in standardisation committees at the European and international level.

Last works focused on the revision of the following standards:

  • EN 350 – Natural durability of timber
  • EN 14298 – Estimation of drying quality
  • EN 16737 – Visual classification of structural tropical timber
  • EN 1001 – Terminology for the durability of timber

Two French standards also received particular attention from ATIBT due to the absence of an equivalent standard at the European level: NF DTU 51.4 «implementation of timber decking» and standard NF B 54 -040 «timber decking blades».
