Jewelry Safety Testing
From necklaces and rings to bracelets and earrings, Intertek offers comprehensive costume and fashion jewelry testing to ensure the safety and quality of your products.
Metal contamination presents a consumer health and safety issue for fashion jewelry. Because of this, adult and children’s fashion jewelry must comply with Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) chemical regulations for nickel release, lead, cadmium and phthalates to be marketed in the EU. In the U.S., children’s fashion jewelry must comply with chemical limits set forth by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) and California’s Proposition 65.
Intertek also conducts fashion jewelry testing for quality and performance. Intertek tests to measure torque, tension, compression, flammability, resistance to corrosion and more. Intertek also helps ensure your fashion jewelry stands up to repeated and prolonged wear to promote consumer satisfaction.
