The NFCA Floor Covering Reference Manual is a source for nationally recognized floor covering installation standards.

These standards were first issued in Canada in 1980 and have since evolved into a respected and recognized information source for floor covering specifications, installation practices and substrate issues. These standards have been used by specification writers to guide floor covering installations for decades.

The new online edition, replaces the old, 2006 hardcopy edition.
Included are eleven architectural specification guides including the NFCA Quality Assurance Program, a specifiable, third party floor inspection service.
