The Tile Council of North America has several products and services that may be helpful to you.

Aside from helping to promote tile installation by working with North American manufacturers and installers and hosting the annual conference Coverings, we have three main services that you can access right here through our website.


Each year the TCNA publishes several handbooks and standards along with working with industry professionals to develop industry wide standards that are published with organizations such as ASTM, ANSI, and NIST.

Laboratory Services

Our state of the art laboratory can help you conduct testing on tile or tile setting products. We have several technicians who are hard at work year round to implement the standards that we have developed together as an industry. How can our technical services group help you?

Standard Tiles

Standard tiles provide consistent references for comparison and verification. TCNA offers standard tiles used throughout the industry for coefficient of friction testing.

Porcelain Certification

Marketplace confusion, installation problems and even liability concerns can result when non-porcelain tiles are misrepresented in the marketplace. Have your tiles certified as porcelain today!

Green Squared®

One Industry, One Standard, One Mark. Green Squared is the world's first consensus-based sustainability standard and certification program developed exclusively for tiles and installation materials.
