Since 1994, AIPPL (Associazione Italiana Posatori Pavimenti in Legno) has been bringing together Italian professionals in the wooden flooring sector. AIPPL associates range from individual installers to family-run business and larger, more structured companies. The Association has always been devoted to promoting the culture of parquet laying, sanding and maintenance; it is hence a reference point for the entire industry.

The Association has chosen to grow by engaging all the stakeholders – architects, engineers, designers, and those who believe in wood as a product to be valued through installation. Through the years, AIPPL established significant synergies and collaborations with Technical partners and Research institutions – such as Q-RAD, CATAS, ISTITUTO GIORDANO, IBE/CNR. This led to the creation of specialized studies and the drafting of sector manuals.

To enhance a sector that must be increasingly recognized and representative in terms of qualification and professionalism, AIPPL in 2018 established an Academy. Here, on a regular basis, technical and training days are organized, with sessions covering theoretical learning and practical application, focusing on key industry topics. The Academy courses prepare for the ICMQ/ACCREDIA Professional Certification exam – an UNI 11556:2014 compliant certification.

AIPPL has been recognized as an Evaluation Body, thus taking an active role in the management of examination procedures, with constant monitoring by ICMQ and ACCREDIA. The Association actively participates in regulatory discussions, including UNI/CT 033/GL23 “Flooring supports (screeds)”, UNI/CT 022/GL5 “Non-structural wood – Wooden floors”, and UNICHIM “Adhesive Commission”.

The Association publishes a magazine, “Parquet e Posa”, aimed at professionals and full of technical information: laying issues, product innovations, ideas, reflections, construction sites, and works featuring members and the many experts who have been collaborating with the association. Constant information is disseminated through the website and the Association’s social media channels.
