As of December 2015, AFSL has tested more than 100 million cases of consumer fireworks for U.S. members. AFSL offers the only independent third-party testing and certification service for both manufacturers and U.S. importers to assure that their products comply with state of the art technical requirements for fireworks. Through the development of voluntary standards and stringent testing to those standards, AFSL assures compliance with U.S. mandatory regulations for consumer fireworks established by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT). In addition, in 2011 AFSL developed voluntary standards and a certification program for Professional Display Fireworks. These voluntary standards include technical performance and labeling requirements to assure that the items are safe to transport. Through a sophisticated network that covers the entire fireworks market in China, AFSL offers its services to every manufacturer involved in producing fireworks for the U.S. market.
AFSL members represent 85 to 90% of all U.S. fireworks importers. AFSL is a unique entity in the field of consumer product safety. It has been described repeatedly by U.S regulatory agencies as a role model for how other industries should work with China manufacturers to assure that products shipped to the U.S. comply with both mandatory and voluntary standards.
