The risks of not testing your products
Understanding local, national and international chemical legislation can be a challenge for any business to successfully manufacture and supply products or materials around the world. Manufacturers, retailers and brands have a duty to protect consumers and the environment from hazardous chemicals in line with global legislative requirements.
If your business does not conduct the necessary due diligence testing, then your business is running the risk of non compliance, as well as leaving your brand open to potential negative PR should products need to be recalled and removed from sale. In many cases where products have been found to contain unsafe levels of restricted substances, they have been destroyed which poses a significant financial risk to any business which does not test their products prior to retail.
