WPA – Wood Protection Association
The Wood Protection Association (WPA) is a technical and advisory organisation dedicated to improving the performance and value of wood as a sustainable construction material. The aim is to guide specifiers and designers to make the right choices for wood on resistance to decay, insects and fire. The technologies involve factory treatment of wood and products prior to installation. The level of protection is tailored precisely to the application for which wood is to be used. The WPA benchmark scheme relates specifically to the durability (resistance to biological degradation) of wood treated with preservative by an industrial impregnation process. It applies specifically to a treated product such as a post. Products certificated under this scheme are verified as being compliant with BS8417, the wood preservation code of practice.
