FSPMA has a Chemical Evaluation Committee that is made up of school district, community college and industry representatives. This committee has developed specifications for products used in schools and colleges and has a procedure for evaluating these products for conformity to the specifications.
FSPMA utilizes the Materials Testing Lab of Miami Dade Public Schools. Once it is determined that the products meet the specifications, the product is placed on the FSPMA certified products list. The committee has several specifications for environmentally friendly products and is working on environmentally friendly specifications for all categories. Specifications and certified products lit can be found on the Miami Date Materials Testing website at:
