The Importance of the APA Trademark

The trademark of approval by APA tells a customer that this product has been manufactured under the strictest programme of quality inspection and testing for a specific use. Only when member mills have successfully passed the APA’s third-party auditing process can they add the official APA trademark – and it can be withdrawn.

Each trademark carries vital product usage information as well as indicating the standard to which the product conforms. APAwood-Europe provides an easy to follow guide to these official APA panel notations. In addition, it gives a comprehensive list of relevant European standards and explains how these relate to US voluntary product standards.
