ACCS Certification

The Carpet Institute of Australia Limited (CIAL) is a non-profit industry association dedicated to the development of Australian's carpet industry.

Carpets are classified under the ACCS labelling system according to their durability and appearance retention.

The classification is determined using technical data supplied by manufacturers and results from test conducted by independent (NATA or equivalent) laboratories.

In determining the ACCS end-use classification, the overriding criterion is the appearance retention properties of the carpet. Appearance retention assessment is reflected in both the objective scoring system (81 out of 100 points) and assessment (the remaining 19 points). Carpets submitted to the ACCS must also meet minimum standards for a range of construction and performance properties before they will be graded.
