Testing services for third-party certifiers
Tests carried out in the accredited laboratories of the Hohenstein Institute often serve as a basis for third-party certifications.
As an independent test laboratory with the CPSC identification number 1060 we are authorised to carry out various individual tests for compliance with requirements stipulated by the CPSC for products imported into the USA.
As a European notified test and certification centre no. 0555 for personal protective equipment we verify compliance with the guideline 89/686/EEC.
On behalf of the German Certification Association for Professional Textile Services we carry out the third-party checks in their members' commercial laundries. The company audits and laboratory examinations are the prerequisite for granting of the RAL Quality Certification Mark 992 (RAL-GZ 992) for professional linen care.
As a member of the International OEKO-TEX® Association we carry out testing for harmful substances with which companies can have their products certified to OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 and Made in Green by OEKO-TEX® . We furthermore audit and certify the production facilities of the textile chain in line with the requirements of the OEKO-TEX® STeP certification for sustainable production conditions.
