Home News NALFA tackles worries of formaldehyde following ‘60 Minutes’ exposé

Washington, D.C.—The North American Laminate Flooring Association (NALFA) offered some points of differentiation for retailers who carry NALFA-certified products, in light of a recent “60 Minutes” report regarding the dangers of high formaldehyde content in Lumber Liquidators’ Chinese-manufactured laminate flooring, to help assure customers that not all laminate flooring carries the same danger.

  • NALFA is the only ANSI-­accredited trade organization exclusively dedicated to the North American laminate flooring industry and representative to the International Standards Organization (ISO).
  • NALFA-­certified products must pass 10 rigorous tests conducted by an independent third party laboratory, including meeting or exceeding CARB 2 emission standards, to be approved to carry the NALFA Certification Seal.
  • This seal serves as verification that a product will provide the retailer and consumer a safe flooring option.
  • Laminate flooring products bearing the NALFA Certification Seal must undergo laboratory testing that affirms compliance with applicable federal and state regulations pertaining to formaldehyde content.
