What is the asthma & allergy friendly® Certification Program?
The asthma & allergy friendly® Certification Program, administered by Allergy Standards Limited (ASL), an independent program created to scientifically test and identify consumer products that are more suitable for people with asthma and allergies.
Why is the asthma & allergy friendly® Certification Program Needed?
Globally an estimated $50 billion a year is spent on non-medicinal, consumer products marketed for people with asthma and allergies such as vacuum cleaners, air cleaners, bedding, toys, flooring, and more. Often these products advertise a wide variety of features and benefits including suitability for those with asthma and allergies. The allergen-avoidance market continues to grow as a result of increased demand, but "currently there is little or no regulation governing claims".*
The asthma & allergy friendly™ Certification Program was created with the mission to empower patients, like you, to make an informed purchase decision when choosing allergen-avoidance products. The Certification Program independently tests and identifies consumer products that are more suitable for the 240+ million people in the world living with asthma and allergies.
