Juvenile Products Testing
Children’s safety is a primary concern for parents, caregivers, communities, and society at large.
Intertek's regulatory experts verify the constructional integrity, safety, and quality of a variety of juvenile products with innovative testing, auditing, and inspection services, including to new Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) regulations, GB, EU Toy Directive, and to Juvenile Product Manufacturers Association (JPMA) accreditation. Drawing upon our extensive experience with these existing regulations, Intertek has also developed a Crib Certification program that utilizes rigorous safety testing and certification processes to go above and beyond current standards, as well as iComply™, an artificial intelligence application that provides a comprehensive solution to ensure and demonstrate compliance with the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act’s (CPSIA) forthcoming Testing and Certification Rule.
We strive to facilitate the creation of the safest environment possible for children by enhancing the design, safety, and quality of juvenile products, including:
- Toys, games, and premiums testing
- High chairs, portable hook-on chairs, infant bath seats
- Carriages and strollers, hand-held infant carriers
- Baby walkers, stationary activity centers, bouncers, and swings
- Full-size and non-full size cribs, toddler beds, and bunk beds
- Baby changing tables (commercial and home use)
- Baby bottles, rattles, dummies and pacifiers
- Gates and enclosures, play yards
We offer extensive material testing including lead content in surface coatings (16 CFR 1303) and in substrates, including phthalates (DBP, DEHP, DINP, BBP, DNOP, DIDP), ASTM F1313 Volatile N-Nitrosamines (for rubber nipples), DEHP – ASTM D3421, and other heavy metals. Physical testing is provided by our experts including but not limited to bite, compression, impact, tension, drop and torque testing.
Our experts also actively participate in a broad range of advisory committees and boards developing standards, including the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), Comité Européen de Normalisation (CEN), American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM), and the Juvenile Product Manufacturers Association (JPMA).
In addition to the juvenile products testing solutions stated above, Intertek also offers a full suite of services for each and every chemical found in your product including toxicity assessments, chemical certification and quality assurance solutions.
