Chemical testing

What is chemical testing?

Chemical testing is the process of determining what a specific product has been made of. It helps companies and manufacturers to make sure they manufacture products that fully conform to international safety requirements. Chemistry lab testing allows manufacturers to find out how they can use the product for its intended purpose and what is the normal product life.
The main types of chemical tests are:

  • Metals testing
  • Material testing
  • Composition analysis
  • Regulatory testing
  • Trace contamination detection

Europe: RoHS Testing (XRF Screening) & Certification

RoHS Certification is obligatory for all manufacturers who want to sell electrical products in the EU market. Chemical analysis labs perform such testing by several different methods, including non-destructive analysis with the use of X-ray fluorescence, wet chemical analysis, or XRF screening. The RoHS Directive prohibits some chemicals that are used in the production of electronic goods or their components. All European companies and market participants must comply with its requirements, starting from manufacturers and ending with distributors.

Canada: CCPSA Consumers’ Safety

On June 20, 2011, the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA) took effect in Canada. According to it, retailers, producers, advertisers, and distributors are strictly prohibited to sell goods that can cause irreparable harm to the health of Canadians. To verify their safety, such products as sporting goods, household chemicals, toys, clothing, paints, mattresses and other categories are subject to chemical testing. The CCPSA does not apply to such categories of goods as food, vehicles, animals, and drugs because they are regulated by other Canadian laws. 360Compliance experts will help you to find out the details about your products and their compliance with the CCPSA.
