Safe products and componentsSafe products must often fulfil requirements in several technical areas. SP's range of working areas means that we can undertake commissions that require a multi-faceted approach in order to verify the product's or component's properties.
Many products are required to be CE-marked. CE-marking is a safety declaration that has different implications for different products. Toys, for example, can be certified by the manufacturer, who is responsible for performing any necessary investigations and providing documentation confirming that the product is safe. Other products, such as helmets, must be tested and approved by an independent body before CE-marking can be applied.
Testing the safety of your products
Some products, such as prams, are not required to be CE-marked or to meet any other formal approval requirements. Nevertheless, manufacturers and importers are responsible for ensuring that products that they place on the market are safe. One way for them to ensure this is to have the pram tested against the applicable European standard or, in those cases where there is no standard, to perform a risk analysis and verify the product's safety characteristics therefrom.
SP can perform the necessary tests to verify a product's or component's properties, as needed (for example) for CE-marking.
