FM Approvals

Setting the Standard in Third-Party Certification

No matter where you do business, the higher your loss protection standards, the more losses you can prevent. FM Approvals product testing and certification program gives your company standards of excellence to demand from vendors, contractors and builders, because we’ve made those standards universally available. When you see a product or service with the FM APPROVED certification mark, you’ll know it meets the highest property loss prevention product testing and certification standards. It’s a certification recognized by the world’s leading regulatory authorities, and can be applied to an entire product or system, or to a single performance characteristic. Products we test and evaluate include:

  • Fire protection equipment
  • Electrical equipment
  • Building materials
  • Roofing assemblies
  • Hazardous location equipment
  • Fire detection and signaling materials
  • Wall assemblies
  • Smoke detection materials

If you’re a manufacturer, your product can often be tested to global standards while, at the same time, being tested to the FM Approvals standards through the FM Approvals’ global certification program. This makes it easier and more cost-efficient and gets your products to market faster than your competition.
