The National Wood Flooring Association has launched its Accepted Product Seal program to help manufacturers earn recognition with consumers for products meeting industry performance standards. About 15 companies have voluntarily started to participate in the program.

The NWFA Accepted Product Seal is designed to help consumers identify wood flooring products that meet established standards for performance within the industry. Standards are determined for six unique product categories: abrasives, adhesives, engineered wood flooring, fasteners, finishes/stains/sealers, and underlayment. Currently, the seal is not available for solid hardwood flooring.

All evaluations are conducted by third-party testing facilities, with specific ASTM/ANSI testing requirements.
