AAMA granted ANSI accreditation in accordance with ISO/IEC 17065

The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) announces that its air-water-structural product certification program has been granted accreditation by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) in accordance with ISO/IEC 17065-2012 “Conformity assessment -- Requirements for bodies certifying products, processes and services."  The scope of the accreditation includes Doors and Windows (91.050.60).

Accreditation to ISO/IEC 17065 confirms that administration of the AAMA certification program conforms to the high procedural standards of these international requirements.

“This is an important achievement for AAMA’s certification programs,” says AAMA’s certification manager, Jason Seals. “Accreditation to ISO/IEC 17065 requires that we maintain a robust and well documented program, and that we pass these requirements down to the program participants. It also helps to ensure that products certified by AAMA licensees meet the product standards as claimed by their labeling and listings in the AAMA Certified Products Directory.”

AAMA was the first certification body to be accredited by ANSI in 1972. The association’s air-water-structural certification program has maintained this accreditation for 43 years.
