The Architectural Woodwork Standards (AWS) is the guide for the specification, construction, and installation of interior architectural woodwork. This first edition of the AWS is a definitive reference manual designed to simplify and clarify guidelines, information and principles required for fabrication, and finishing and installation of architectural woodwork. It provides design professionals with a logical and facile means to comprehensively specify woodwork elements.

The AWS includes compliance criteria to ensure that all millwork manufacturers are competing equally when bidding on projects and they are obligated to perform work of equal quality. The Standards, as in both previous publications, encompass three grades of quality: Economy, Custom and Premium. The AWS also includes a comprehensive glossary of terms. Adopted and published jointly by Architectural Woodwork Institute (AWI), the Architectural Woodwork Manufacturers Association of Canada (AWMAC), and the Woodwork Institute (WI), effective October 1, 2009.
