- SNA Products, Regulatory & Account Compliance Specialist
"I just wanted to let you know how much we have appreciated the thoughtful and professional service we’ve received from Joe McCarthy. We were swamped trying to get some hand sanitizers approved by the FDA, and had mixed feelings when we learned that London Drug was interested in purchasing some as well. I knew very little about the process of getting it approved by Health Canada, and took a chance contacting your company for help after a quick search on Google. It was a fortunate decision. After a brief phone conversation, Joe knew exactly what we needed and made the entire process seem effortless. I’ve worked with a lot of consultants, he is by far one of the best!"

Frequently Asked Questions about our Chemical Testing:
What is chemical lab testing?

Why is chemical laboratory analysis important?
Testing is important across a broad range of industries to ensure quality control, safety and compliance.
Chemical testing and analysis are vital for product hazard classification because it provides objective, scientifically grounded information about the properties of chemical substances or products. This data helps assess potential risks to human health and the environment.
By analyzing factors like flammability and corrosivity, labs can assign accurate hazard classifications and labels, such as those under the Globally Harmonized System (GHS).
Hazard classification testing ensures that everyone from manufacturers and importers to workers and consumers receive accurate information about products they are exposed to.
This promotes an understanding of the product’s safety requirements through proper handling, storage, and transportation. And it protects suppliers and retailers from possible penalties due to lack of compliance.
Testing for product performance helps brand owners to substantiate the claims they want to make about their product to potential consumers. This builds trust and fairness in the marketplace. And testing for 3rd party eco certification ensures that there is a consistent standard by which products are considered a ‘safer choice’ for consumers.
What does ISO 17025 Accredited mean and why is it important?
ISO 17025 Accredited signifies that a laboratory has met internationally recognized standards for competence and performance in testing and calibration.
Laboratories with this accreditation have demonstrated their ability to produce accurate and reliable results, maintain rigorous quality management systems, and follow established procedures.
It’s important because it ensures quality control and credibility of laboratory data, which is crucial in various industries like healthcare, manufacturing, and environmental monitoring.
ISO 17025 accreditation instills confidence in the accuracy of test results, promotes consistency, and facilitates recognition across global markets and acceptance of data.
It helps products comply with applicable regulations and ultimately, leads to better decision-making and safety for consumers and stakeholders.
Moreover, large retailers like Amazon often require proof of compliance from an Amazon approved testing lab. Not all chemical testing labs are ISO accredited so it is prudent to verify before beginning a chemical testing project.
