The reports we issue are an important means for our customers to get their products accepted in various markets and to ensure the quality of their production processes. With our specially created "HFA inspected" marking, customers can show this tested and verified quality of their products in a visually clear and noticeable manner.
Our HFA inspected mark represents a very high recognition value and immediately creates the desired connection with the HFA. This has been achieved with a design that incorporates essential elements of the HFA logo in a round sign. Above all, the distinctive hook and the inscription "HOLZFORSCHUNG AUSTRIA INSPECTED" lend the sign and the product associated with it their desired character.
Potential customers and interested parties can obtain information about the product marked with the certification mark via an individual test number. You can find the current mark holders here.
