FM Approved


FM approvals is the independent testing arm of international insurance carrier, FM Global. FM approvals uses scientific research and testing to make sure products conform to the highest standards for safety and property loss prevention. Products that pass get the “FM APPROVED” mark. Think of it as like the Good Housekeeping seal of approval, only better.

Here’s what FM approvals focuses on:

  • Objectively testing property loss prevention products and services and certifying those that meet rigorous loss prevention standards
  • Encouraging the development and use of FM approved products and services that improve and advance property loss prevention practices

FM approvals follows these five steps to make sure the products they’re testing meet quality guidelines:

  1. Manufacturer request
  2. Proposal issue and manufacturer authorization
  3. Review, testing and first audit
  4. Report, FM Approved mark and listing
  5. Follow-up audits
