FireAde AFFF Foam Receives The Highest Environmental Classification After An 8 Month TUV/WGK Environmental Study Conducted In Germany
FAYETTEVILLE, GA - All testing on FireAde AFFF was performed in compliance with the Swiss Ordinance relating to Good Laboratory Practice, adopted February 2, 2000 (RS 813.016.5). This Ordinance is based on the OECD Principles of Good Laboratory Practice as revised in 1997 and adopted November 26, 1997 by decision of the OECD Council (C97)186/Final).
