IAAF Certification

IAAF Certification - Getting your track certified

The Certification System has been developed in response to the need for better quality products in top level competitions and the rapid developments in athletics equipment. It also recognises the growing trend towards international standardisation of product specifications. Designations such as IAAF Approved or Authorised by IAAF have been used to advertise products which may or may not have been submitted for testing by IAAF. Despite ongoing checks at competitions, many products still appear on the market which do not meet the precise requirements laid down by the International Association of Athletics Federations.
