AHAM Standards

AHAM, an accredited standards development organization, maintains 25 active performance and sustainability standards covering a full range of home appliances. AHAM performance standards aim to establish common methods of testing home appliances, so as to provide common information on the major performance attributes of the products. AHAM sustainability standards give manufacturers, consumers, retailers and other stakeholders a technically based methodology to assess the relative environmental impacts of home appliances. Here’s the full list of AHAM standards.
