The FIP-IFP Seal of Acceptance/Approval Program recognizes products that are beneficial to foot health and of significant value when used in a consistently applied program of daily foot care and regular professional treatment.
The FIP-IFP initiated its Seal of Acceptance/Approval program in 2008 but has been revised with a number of enhancements in 2016. It includes two components:
Seal of Acceptance – this program evaluates footwear, materials, insoles, hosiery and equipment.
Seal of Approval – this program evaluates the use of therapeutic products and their adjuncts.
A seal is awarded to a product after it has been scrupulously reviewed by a committee of expert podiatrists who have determined that the product/products promote quality foot health.
The FIP-IFP Seal of acceptance/approval is awarded to a product after the FIP-IFP Seal Committee evaluates and determines whether the product promotes quality foot health. The committee is composed of a chair and several other members. Once the Seal Committee evaluates the submitted products it forwards its recommendations to the FIP-IFP Executive Board for final approval.
If you have questions about the Seal guidelines please contact Caroline Teugels, Executive Director of FIP-IFP at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please consult the 2016 FIP-IFP Seal guidelines.
