Consumer Products Testing Services
Ensuring consumer products comply with regulatory requirements and industry standards
The importance of consumer product testing
With growing competition from new markets and increased demand for quality and sustainability from consumers, quality assurance and compliance solutions are vital throughout the concept-to-consumer journey.
Consumer product testing is the evaluation of goods sold in the retail marketplace. Testing can determine if products comply with regulatory requirements and industry standards, along with identifying how a product will perform for the consumer or against a competitors’ products. Customising an appropriate testing programme for your products can provide you with the ability to better manage risk and protect your company’s brand. Comprehensive services are available for a full range of consumer products (softlines/textiles, toys and juvenile products, electrical and electronics, hardlines/hard goods, cosmetic & health & household & food & beauty products, footwear, smart products and automotive products) throughout the supply chain.
