Labeling Compliance Program Standards

All sampling, classification and testing of the filling material will be conducted in accordance with International Down and Feather Bureau (IDFB) standards and performed by an IDFB certified testing laboratory. Areas of compliance include down cluster, species identification, fill power, oxygen number, turbidity, fill weight and thread count. Testing for thread count is performed using ASTM Method 3775.

All other areas of compliance must be in accordance with industry standards as well as state and federal laws. Please note that meeting the standards set by the ADFC Labeling Compliance Program is not necessarily proof of compliance with existing state or federal laws.
