The BWF has an Equipment Approval Scheme where manufacturers of badminton products can apply to the BWF to be included of an official list of BWF Approved Equipment.
The BWF Equipment Approval Scheme was introduced in 1988 to maintain a satisfactory standard for feather shuttles used in international badminton events. The BWF now approves four product categories. Click on the below links for steps to apply for approval.
An application process for approvals is required and this includes testing of the equipment and the payment of a fee to the BWF. Shuttlecock testing is conducted twice an each year. The approval period runs for one year beginning from the approval date. Flooring, net and net posts are tested throughout the year. The approval period for these runs for two years beginning from approval date.
The results of all the tests are examined by the BWF and if approval is granted for the product tested, the product / manufacturer will be entitled to include the wording "Approved by the BWF for international play" in the packaging and advertisements for that approved brand and grade. However, the use of the BWF logo is not permitted to use it.
