Paper360 Better Together Podcast – Chris Czyryca & TAPPI Standards
Jan 20, 2021 Season 1 Episode 4
Jan Bottiglieri

If you’re a professional involved in almost any area of pulp and paper manufacturing, you’re aware of TAPPI Standards. But how are these standards created? What importance do they play in our industry?

For this episode, Paper360° Editorial Director Jan Bottiglieri speaks with Chris Czyryca, president of Collaborative Testing Services Inc. Chair of the Quality and Standards Management Committee. 

Chris admits that his initial foray into the TAPPI Standards process was not exactly by choice. “How I got involved, quite frankly, was that my boss told me that I was going to get involved!” he says. “And I would encourage other bosses to do the same. I do that now with my people… it is the best way to learn about Standards.”

Listeners will learn about how easy it is to join a Standard-Specific Interest Group (SSIG)—and how rewarding that peer-to-peer networking can be. “You’re working on something for the industry as a whole; and that knowledge, that experience, that résumé-building… it all carries over.”

            Standards creation is a process that’s truly BETTER TOGETHER and we’re excited to bring you this engaging look at how you can be a part of the process.
