new gas chromatograph in laboratory of analytical chemistry

In August 2018 our laboratory of analytical chemistry purchased a brand new gas chromatograph, mass spectrometer Shimadzu GCMS-QP2020, equipped by a thermal desorption unit TD-30, which is used for analysis of emissions of organic substances.

 

The spectrometer has a superior sensitivity for organic substances in orders of micro-grams per kg of sample. The system is mainly used for analysis of volatile organic substances (VOC) and condensable substances (FOG) according to the requirements of automotive standard VDA 278, but also for emission measurement of polymer samples to investigate additive system, smell, NIAS (not-intentionally added substances in plastics) etc.

 

Contact for such types of analysis: Franky Puype, phone: +420 577 601 703, e-mail: fpuype@itczlin.cz

IMPORTANCE OF VOLUNTARY CERTIFICATION OF CHILDREN’S CARE PRODUCTS

Products determined for children’s care make a specific group with the common purpose of use: care for infants and toddlers. This group is covered by European standards defining technical requirements with respect to ensuring the essential safety requirements according to the Directive 2001/95/EC – General product safety (Act No. 102/2001 Coll. on General Safety in the Czech legislation).

  • As concerns meeting products technical requirements, the directive on general safety does not require participation of independent certification bodies, which would verify conformity of the products’ characteristics to the requirements stated in standards. Only a very small number of manufacturers and importers have their products tested or certified. Unfortunately, this leads to relatively frequent breach of safety requirements, resulting in the monitoring bodies awarding fines and in some cases even in withdrawing dangerous products from the market.
  • Voluntary certification offers verification of conformity of the product’s characteristics according to the applicable standard.
  • Confirmation of safety and health harmlessness by means of the certificate provides a high degree of assurance that the product will not cause temporary or permanent harm to the child’s health and it also ensures good image of the company within supplier-customer relations.

SERVICES OF THE CERTIFICATION BODY FOR PRODUCTS

  • Certification of products (ITC certificate, certificate of the Accredited Certification Body for Products)
  • Attestation of products
  • Certification mark “ITC certified quality
    ITC grants a license for the use of the quality mark, which is granted to the areas designed for playing where high standard of safety and quality parameters has been proved by certification and where meeting the prerequisites of the producer for continuous quality and safety compliance has been proved through inspection visits.
