The primary objective of WFTAO is to facilitate the transfer of national products to the global marketplace through the acceptance of technical assessments delivered by its members.
A favourable technical assessment delivered by a WFTAO member will:
Provide a means of demonstrating the fitness for purpose of the product with building regulations
Be more readily accepted by building control personnel
Show that the holder’s manufacturing and QA systems meet high standards
Save valuable selling time, by easing acceptance of new products in a conservative market
Provide a good opportunity for press coverage for the holders to use the distinctive WFTAO logo on advertisements, literature and display material, identifying themselves as quality-conscious companies and enhancing their image
Be promoted on the WFTAO’s web site (www.wftao.com) which is currently achieving 1,563 ‘hits’ a month
