Electric Scooter Testing
To reduce the number of injuries in powered scooters, the CPSC has taken the initiative, providing technical support for the development of new safety standards for electric and gas powered scooters. To comply with the CPSC standards, ACT Lab offers extensive scooter testing on powered scooters to reduce brake failure, wobbly wheels, lose handle bars and other product defects. Powered scooters are a relatively popular means of transportation which makes it very important that every component adheres to the industry standards and regulations.
Helmet Safety Testing
Every helmet should have a sticker on the inside, and sometimes on the back exterior, that lists the helmet weight, manufacturing information, and safety certifications, among other information. Helmet testing is necessary in order to protect the public from injuries. At ACT Lab, we perform tests including: force/impact absorption, strap strength, roll-off prevention, peripheral vision and more that comply with CPSC standards and provide safety in falls or crashes. Bicycle helmets that fail any of the requirements violate the Consumer Product Safety Act.
The biggest risk with jewelry is that it may contain lead. This is a toxic metal that will not break down in nature and can accumulate in a human’s body. In addition, the standard addresses hazards associated with children’s jewelry testing including the potential for exposure to cadmium from mouthing or swallowing small metal jewelry components and other parts of children’s jewelry. High levels of lead in children have been known to lead to a variety of health problems. The federal Consumer Product Safety Commission requires children’s metal jewelry to be tested for total lead concentration. California Prop 65 requires testing for lead and cadmium in both children’s and adult’s jewelry.
Toy and Children’s Product Safety Testing
Manufactures and importers of children’s products are required to follow certain testing and certification protocols established by the US Consumer Product Safety Commission. The law defines a children’s product as a consumer product designed or intended for a child 12 years of age or younger. Children’s products are required to undergo third party testing and to have a written Children’s Product Certificate demonstrating compliance. ACT Lab is devoted to complying with CPS-administered regulations and can perform various tests to ensure that children’s products follow CPSC regulations.
Outdoor & Sporting Goods Testing
It is essential for an athlete’s gear to perform under stress. Leaders in the industry understand it is crucial for sporting goods manufacturers, retailers, suppliers, and distributors to strive for the highest standards in quality and safety. Most popular brands comply with local and international regulations to ensure their product performance stays on par with an ever-changing competitive landscape.
E-Mobility Products Testing
The global electric mobility market size is expected to reach $478.9 billion by 2025, which is a market growth of 24.7$ from 2019. In the compliance and testing world, increased market size leads to an increase in global standards and regulations. ACT Lab is deeply involved in the development of e-mobility standards, giving us specialized industry insight. Our testing services for e-mobility products include e-bikes, e-scooters, e-rideshare products, e-skates, e-skateboards, hoverboards, and more.
