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.
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 strollers, prams, pushchairs, carriages and wheeled child conveyances
- Baby walkers, stationary activity centers, bouncers, and swings
- 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.
