AP Certified Non-Toxic

Expert Advice - TheGreenOffice.com

The Art & Creative Materials Institute, Inc. (ACMI) is a non-profit association of manufacturers of art, craft and other creative materials.  The AP (Approved Product) Seal identifies materials that are safe.  All materials are evaluated by a medical expert to certify that they contain no toxins in quantities that could cause acute or chronic health problems. 

Additionally, products bearing the AP Seal meet specific requirements of material, workmanship, working qualities, and color developed by ACMI and other organizations.  Some products cannot attain this performance certification because no quality standard currently exists for certain types of products.
