Bicycle Helmet Testing
There are currently about 10 bicycle helmet safety standards around the world. Depending on where you distribute your product, your helmet may have to meet some or all of these standards. Our team can help you establish which standards are necessary for your product to meet to be in compliance with local and global standards.
In the U.S., every bicycle helmet is required to meet the CPSC 1203 standard.
Motorcycle Helmet Testing
In the United States, all motorcycle helmets must meet the “DOT standard”. The current DOT rating that is in effect now is the federal stand FMVSS 218.
The standard for motorcycle helmets in European nations is the ECE No. 22. The ECE has additionally adopted the new no 22.06 standard which includes the testing of rotational oblique impacts.
Other Helmet Testing
Helmets play a vital, life-saving role in many activities. We also offer testing for manufacturers who make specialized helmets for equestrian riders, snowboarders, BMX cyclers, skiers, skaters, and more.
Specialized helmets can have their own standards so it is important to consult with a third-party expert like ACT LAB before going into production.
ACT-LAB is an ISO/IEC 17025 accredited laboratory that conducts consumer product safety and compliance testing for an active world. We can help ensure that your products both meet industry standards and are inspected to ensure the utmost quality.
