Chemical Analytical Testing Of Hardline Products

For household appliances and decoration articles

Business Challenge

Cutting-edge designs and new product launches are no longer sufficient to guarantee success in the consumer hardlines market. The quality and chemical harmlessness of the products, as well as testing,  are just as much a decisive factor to the consumer as the increasing demand for environmentally friendly products. Raising concerns about hazardous substances that adversely impact on the environment and health have caused some countries to pass laws and prohibitions concerning a whole range of pollutants. These regulations have a direct impact on a variety of industrial areas and products such as consumer goods, decorative products and furniture. Bureau Veritas Consumer Products Services deter¬mine the requirements applicable to a particular product and offer laboratory tests, advisory services and evaluations to ensure that the products comply with world-wide regulations, product quality is improved, consumer complaints are reduced and negative press is avoided.
