Thanks to our long-term experience in conducting laboratory tests, we are able to analyze the result of the formulations effectively and test-based measurements. Our quality standards go beyond the protocols and allow us to make the formulations particularly effective and at the same time suitable to meet the highest demands and expectations of sustainability.
The aim of the laboratory test is to confirm that the test product cleans as well as or better than a comparable reference product or a reference generic formulation. The highest recommended dilution should be used in the test, when a dosage range is given for a normal soiling. 1.1 Laboratory requirements The manufacturer’s test laboratory or/and an external test laboratory can be approved to conduct testing to document effectiveness of hard surface cleaners if the following requirements are met: – it must be possible for EU Ecolabel competent bodies to monitor the performance of testing (e.g. on-site visits to the laboratory), – the EU Ecolabel Competent Body must have access to all data on the product (e.g. technical data sheets), – whenever possible, the samples must be made anonymous for the test laboratory (e.g. product A and product B). For tests where the reference product is a generic formulation, the tester shall be aware to modify the test method as appropriate, – the test laboratories must be equipped with the devices described in the test method, – performance of the effectiveness test as well as the test method must be described in the quality control system.
