Since 1997, the Association has been granting Certificates to recommend companies which have committed themselves to meeting the criteria required by our organisation. The Certificate gives its bearer the right to use the Association’s logo. The logo testifies to the correctness of the processing method, the good quality of the entire product, as well as to the company’s reliability, it is a guarantee of the authenticity of the raw material used: exclusively amber and therefore a protection against forgeries and substitutes. Recommended companies must comply with Amber Classification System created by IAA.
In 2014 IAA has implementes products certification system.
Founded in 1996 The International Amber Association associates manufacturers and merchants from the amber industry, artists who create amber works of art and the collectors of natural specimens and historical amber artefacts. The Association also includes researchers from various scientific fields who deal with amber-related issues. Currently The IAA has over 280 members from 28 countries.
