Overview: The Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM) promotes and represents manufacturers of major and portable home appliances, floor care products and suppliers to the industry. AHAM's basic function is to provide a legally supervised framework in which the industry can act on matters of mutual interest. It is intended to function in those areas that its members are unable to operate individually (industry statistics or product certification) and to provide economies through joint action (special research, public information) or collective action (government relations), whichever is necessary. AHAM's programs and services fall primarily into five areas: government representation; business data compilation; self-regulation; technical standards development; product certification; and public information. AHAM was formed in 1967 when companies with mutual membership in both AHLMA and NEMA's Consumer Products Division merged into a new trade association to bring together manufacturers with like technical, manufacturing, and marketing characteristics.
