Statement on Counterfeiting
Counterfeiting and other unauthorized uses of FM Approvals' certification marks have the potential for causing considerable harm to FM Approvals' customers and the public at large. It is FM Approvals' policy to diligently pursue and stop counterfeiting and other misuses whenever they are brought to its attention, including:
Products are not approved but the infringer is using an FM Approvals certification mark (FM diamond etc.) on its products.
Unauthorized Product Modification
An FM Approved product is currently not in compliance with the original approval requirements (includes marking an Approved product that has been determined to have QA or performance defects).
Misrepresentation of FM Approvals
An FM Approvals manufacturer of record is using the FM Approvals mark on a product that is not approved.
Misuse of FM Approvals Mark and/or Certificate
An FM Approved product is sold by someone other than the manufacturer of record.
FM Approvals encourages its customers and others to provide it with notice and evidence if and when any of the above misuses are taking place. Please contact Tom McCarty, FM Approvals Loss Prevention Coordinator, at +1 (1) 781 255 4802.
