Standards and Certifications


Resilient companies base their expectations on what is achievable, not what is acceptable.

Standards and Certification

Raising Protection Standards Across the Globe

How can you be sure your facilities are built to last, or that the loss prevention products you’ve installed have been tested to verify their intended performance? We set worldwide standards for contractors, builders and manufacturers to adhere to, so you know they’re meeting the highest levels of safety and resilience.

For example, our Berkley Insurance United States Approvals® product testing service tells you instantly if an industrial or commercial product or service meets these high standards. If a product has an FM APPROVED mark, that means it’s been through the certification testing process to verify its function as intended.
