We carry out work at all levels, e.g. for the Trading Standards Organisation, HM’s National Measurements Office, BEIS Regulatory Delivery, and various consumer organisations.
We perform tests on nominated products to ensure that 'they do what they say on the tin.' Predominantly these tests are carried out to recognised international standards, in house procedures or specially formulated test criteria, all to ensure that the product is safe and fit for purpose. This type of work is also carried out to check advertising claims (for example, energy efficiency, etc).
