Children’s Textile and Apparel Testing
The safety of children’s textiles and apparel is highly regulated by various agencies worldwide and not only requires rigorous safety testing to ensure compliance to standards, but also comprehensive performance testing to meet consumer expectations.
Premier Testing Services India helps to ensure your children’s apparel meets standards such as the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA), EU REACH, Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA), Washington State Children’s Safe Products Act and California’s Proposition 65. We also offers a Trim evaluation Program to provide children’s apparel and footwear retailers, vendors and trim suppliers the transparency and traceability necessary to rely on component testing under the CPSC Testing and Certification Rule.
