International Certification Standards body Allergy Standards Limited and asthma & allergy friendly® Certification Program to Exhibit at Major Allergy and Asthma Conference
Date:3/3/2017

The rigorous scientific certification standards developed by Allergy Standards Limited are used to test products for the asthma & allergy friendly® Certification Program. This Certification Program is a joint venture between Allergy Standards Ltd and the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA). Its Certification Mark on products enables consumers to identify products that are scientifically demonstrated to be suitable for those with asthma or allergies.

The asthma & allergy friendly® Certification Program will host an exhibition booth at the AAAAI's Annual Meeting, which is expected to draw up to 5,000 allergists, immunologists, and related health professionals. Dr. McKeon will join AAFA CEO Dr. Cary Sennett to address a symposium with over 80 attendees. Dr. McKeon and his colleagues from the Certification Program will also be gathering information on physician awareness of the Program, as well as demonstrating the new iOS and Android App for sourcing Certified Products.

This event comes at the culmination of a year-long program of events to mark the 10th anniversary of the asthma & allergy friendly® Certification Program, including a Program Client Council meeting and consumer events such as mall walks.

Dr. McKeon said "Demand for the Certification Program is increasing amongst consumers and retailers, and through our participation in the AAAAI's Annual Meeting in Atlanta this year we plan to raise awareness amongst the physicians who help families dealing with asthma and allergies.

"The goal of Allergy Standards Limited and the Certification Program is to combat empty science claims and inaccurate advertising, by ensuring our certified products are subject to rigorous and relevant testing. In doing this, the asthma & allergy friendly® Certification Mark and our rigorous standards can give confidence and comfort to families dealing with asthma and allergies, and also to their physicians."
