Laboratory test is required in some cases to ensure compliance and conformity of your products. For instance, fashion jewelry selling to US and EU needs to be tested for the content of hazardous elements such as lead, cadmium and nickel. We require a third-party, authoritative test report from supplier, and do additional lab test when necessary. The cost for the additional test is usually covered by supplier if the test result fails.
Testing laboratories in China
Sometimes you have to test your products to ensure compliance to your country’s safety regulations. A couple of big companies, as well as some local testing labs are capable of testing the most common product categories.
You will get a list of relevant tests with quotations from the lab if you send them the product descriptions (better with photos) and the destination country/state info.
The big companies cover wider spectrum of product categories and their test results appear more authoritative; while smaller local labs offer more competitive price and often better service. Figure out what’s important to you and use the kind that suits your needs better.
