Consumer Goods

Consumer goods cover a vast array of materials and ASSL has considerable experience in physical testing and chemical analysis. We also have links to other more specialised service providers, to check safety and compliance of consumer products. We carry out work for local authorities, private businesses and the general public.

Testing and analysis can identify high flammability, unsafe physical construction and dangerous or toxic components. False descriptions, claims and advertising can be identified and interpretation of test results and appropriate advice will be provided.

Consumer products include:

  • toys
  • clothing
  • protective equipment and goods e.g. sunglasses and sun lotion
  • cosmetics and personal care goods
  • household items e.g. bleach
  • accuracy of labeling

We can check that imported goods comply with current legislation.

If you have an issue regarding consumer good safety please contact your local Trading Standards Officers.
