Consumer Product Testing Services
Managing Risk and Protecting Your Brand
In today’s highly complex and changing consumer marketplace, manufacturers and retailers need to be confident that the products they deliver to market meet consumer expectations along with the required safety, regulatory and government standards globally. The need to meet these objectives is crucial. Noncompliant products risk being recalled. Poor quality products can result in consumer dissatisfaction and product returns. Both can negatively impact brand image.
What is Consumer Product Testing?
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; and health, beauty, household and food products) throughout the supply chain.

FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
Are there different testing requirements for countries?
In many cases, regulations vary by country. Additionally, in the US some regulations differ even by state. This can present challenges for products distributed in multiple markets. Identifying where a product will be distributed is an important first step toward regulatory compliance.
What is transit testing and would it be beneficial for my products?
As products are sourced and shipped worldwide to meet consumer demands, the need for durable packaging continues to grow. Determining if products will arrive intact at their destination can increase consumer satisfaction and help reduce the costs normally associated with damaged goods. Transit testing offers the best means to anticipate how products will perform in shipping.
