Intertek provides LHAMA evaluations in compliance with ASTM D-4236 for a wide range of art materials marketed in the United States.
The Labeling of Hazardous Art Materials Act (LHAMA) requires a Board Certified Toxicologist to evaluate art materials for their potential to cause chronic hazards to the consumer and recommend suitable warning statements to conform to the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) designated D-4236. The reviewed materials can be labeled with “Conforms to ASTM D-4236”.
If desired, Intertek can also suggest labeling phrases, warnings and warning symbols that may be necessary on the package of the product other than LHAMA requirements (e.g. California Proposition 65).
