The UIAA Safety Label logo is a registered trademark of the UIAA. The UIAA Safety Label on a piece of equipment means that samples of the equipment have been tested by an accredited, independent third party and shown to satisfy the requirements set forth in the UIAA standard. However, no lab testing can ever truly reflect the range of situations encountered in practice. Purchase of climbing equipment bearing the UIAA Safety Label supports the UIAA and its global mission to support and promote climbing and mountaineering.
In ensuring its standards are always relevant, the UIAA Safety Commission regularly studies the market and analyses accidents to determine if existing standards should be revised or upgraded. Furthermore, it accredits laboratories that test mountaineering and climbing equipment to ensure that the test results are in accordance with UIAA standards.
The UIAA label on a piece of mountaineering or climbing equipment attests it to be of the highest international standards for safety having met the requirements of the relevant UIAA standard.
Important: The UIAA Safety Label logo trademark is registered internationally and may only be used for products that have been certified by the UIAA and registered as such.
