WASHINGTON — The American Sheep Industry Association is excited to announce several new additions to the American Wool Assurance program.
Ranch Groups are now available to help growers become AWA Ranch Group Certified. Ranch Groups allow growers to:
- Reap the benefits of achieving a fully certified status;
- Decrease auditing costs by only a portion of the members being audited every four years;
- Pool wool to create larger lots of certified wool.

The AWA Guide is available to help you understand more about the program, its standards and what is needed for a second-party evaluation or third-party audit.
A reminder: before you shear and have your wool clip ready, you might want to become accredited in AWA Level I. To do so, simply complete the AWA and SSQA learning courses in the Member Home section of the website.
