Information & Disclaimers
As noted previously, ACT’s Voluntary Performance Guidelines (“Guidelines”) and associated symbols (“Marks”) are for information purposes only and are made available to help assist specifiers and end-users in evaluating certain characteristics of contract textiles.
Neither the Guidelines nor the Marks constitute any promise, representation or warranty that a product or sample that bears or to which a Mark is referenced will in fact comply with applicable federal, state, or municipal laws, codes, rules and regulations concerning the intended use of such produce (“Laws”), nor any assurance, representation or guarantee regarding or relating in any manner to the safety of any product or sample that bears or, to which a Mark is referenced.
Whenever appropriate, specifiers and end users should seek the advice of professionals or other knowledgeable persons to ascertain whether a product will in fact comply with applicable Laws.
Understand that the testing and standards (“Standards”) referenced in the Guidelines are developed and promulgated by third parties not associated with ACT, and that these Standards often change or are supplemented by such third parties. Accordingly, the fact that a particular Standard is referenced in the Guidelines (and/or) associated with any Mark) does not mean, nor is it intended to be a representation that Standard is the most current one.
It is the responsibility of the contract textile vendor and/or the manufacturer (not ACT) to determine in all instances whether or not a textile meets each of the Standards to which a particular Mark is referenced.
THE ASSOCIATION FOR CONTRACT TEXTILES EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS LIABILITY TO ANY AND ALL PERSONS AND ENTITIES FOR PERSONAL INJURY, PROPERTY DAMAGE, AND ANY OTHER DAMAGE OF ANY KIND OR NATURE, (WHETHER OR NOT SUCH DAMAGES ARE DIRECT, INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL OR COMPENSATORY) RESULTING FROM, OR IN ANY WAY RELATING TO THE GUIDELINES AND MARKS.
The marks are Registered Certification Marks at the US Patent and Trademark Office and are owned by the Association for Contract Textiles, Inc.
