Chemical / Household Product Testing

Testing Specialty Chemical/Household Products

There are dozens of hidden toxins in household chemical products. Agencies are becoming stricter and the general public is quickly becoming more aware. Chemical testing services help identify a product formula, in addition to any possible risk factors.

When marketing or manufacturing chemical cleaning products, these items can be subject to federal labeling requirements, clear communication regarding hazards, and registration with the FDA, EPA, CPSC and other related agencies.

Our Products

Some key examples of chemical and household products include:

  • Disinfectants — If a product claims to destroy or kill any pest, including bacteria, it generally needs to be reported to the EPA. From potential adverse effects to labeling requirements, regulations vary.
  • Sanitizers that come into contact with food — Once again, the EPA tends to regulate these products based on the Food Quality Protection Act. FDA standards are also common practice.
  • Consumer cleaning products — The spectrum of cleaning products is vast; however, one of the main concerns relates to volatile organic compounds.
  • Air fresheners — Hidden hazards are lurking in air fresheners, including phthalates.
