About AAFA

asthma & allergy friendly™ Certification Program

Many products promise to help control allergens. But some products make false or exaggerated claims. This makes it hard for consumers to know the best products to buy.

AAFA joined with Allergy Standards Limited to create the asthma & allergy friendly™ Certification Program. It helps consumers choose the best products. We test products made for people with asthma and allergies. Products that pass our tests receive our seal of approval.
