MORE INFORMATION


new ICP spectrometer in ITC labs

Analytical laboratory has recently purchased new ICP spectrometer Agilent 5800. The spectrometer is intended for determination of elements in water solutions, leachates and mineralisates. It is used mainly for evaluation of food-contact materials, products for children, material analysis of plastics, rubbers and metals. Spectrometer can be also used for determination of elements, which are limited in electro-products by RoHS 3 directive. High sensitivity enable evaluation of products according to many national and European legislations.  


DETERMINATION OF INDIVIDUAL ORGANIC COMPOUNDS (VOC) AND IDENTIFICATION OF THE EMITTED COMPOUNDS BY GC-MS/FID

In autumn 2019 our laboratory of analytical chemistry purchased gas chromatograph Shimadzu GCMS QP 2020 NX with mass spectromecter and flame ionization detector, which is used for analysis of emission of organic substances (VOC) mainly for automotive materials.

Determination of VOC by this method meets the requirements:
- VW 50180 (CLP classification of VOC emission in accordance with Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 included)
- PV 3341
- VDA 277
- VCS 1027,2759


Laboratory is on the List of accepted service laboratories by the VW Group for test according to PV 3341!

  • PRODUCTS DETERMINED FOR CHILDREN’S CARE

  • Baby carriages, playpens
  • Support seats, travel cots
  • Changing units, safety barriers
  • Baby walkers, bouncers
  • Dummies, dummies’ holders
  • Safety harnesses for children, wristlinks and similar products
  • Bicycle seats, baby carriers

  • Bicycle seats
  • Children’s high chairs

 

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.
