ITC
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


New general director

Announcement of change in ITC management.

 

Since September 1, 2018, new general director of the Institute for Testing and Certification has been appointed Mgr. Jiri Hes.

 

RNDr. Radomir Cevelik remains in the position of Board of Directors Vice President.


Determination of phthalic acid esters according to requirements of CPSC

In June 2018 analytical laboratory ITC accredited new procedure for determination of phthalic acid esters in consumer products according to requirements of CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) No. CPSC-CH-C1001-09.4. New standard came in force on April 25, 2018 and released old one No. CPSC-CH-C1001-09.3.

More information concerning phthalate testing are available here


Analytical laboratory had implemented new methods for testing of volatile organic compounds (VOC) from car interior parts according to Hyundai and Toyota requirements, namely

Hyundai Engineering Standard - MS300-55 - Determination of volatile organic compounds from moulded parts in the vehicle interior

and

Toyota Engineering Standard TSM 0508G – Volatile component measurement method using sampling bag

Tests are using sampling bags for emission tests, followed by chromatography determination of emitted substances.

new liquid chromatograph with tandem mass spectrometry Shimadzu LC-MS/MS 8045

At the beginning of 2018 department of analytical chemistry purchased brand new liquid chromatograph with tandem mass spectrometry Shimadzu LC-MS/MS 8045, which is used for trace analysis of organic substances. Spectrometer has superior sensitivity for organic substances in orders of nano-grams per litre of sample. In June first analytical procedures successfully passed accreditation after the validation.

Products certification

Products certification, CE » Voluntary certification

Product certification is a process of confirming conformity of products' properties to requirements of a technical specification. Beside risk analysis, testing in an accredited laboratory and comparing the products properties with the specified requirements, it usually involves also surveillance over stability of the certified product's quality throughout the certificate validity. The certificate is often accomplished by granting a licence for using one of the certification marks (ITC Certified Quality, Safe Toys, Giraffe – Safe Shoes...) Product certification can be carried out by the accredited certification body (COV No. 3020), or in a non-accredited manner. The former case involves confirmation of conformity of the product properties to requirements of a regulation (an act, decree, standard, directive, etc.) mentioned in the annex to the certificate of accreditation. In the latter case, any document defining the product requirements may be used for certification.

IMPORTANCE OF VOLUNTARY CERTIFICATION

Products certification by a certification body is an impartial confirmation of conformity of product properties to requirements of a specified document (act, decree, standard, regulation…).

Product certificate supports:

  • product credibility
  • guarantee of stable quality
  • product competitiveness
  • better marketing of the product
  • reducing probability of claims

PRODUCTS CERTIFICATION BODY SERVICES

  • Products certification
  • Attestation of products
  • Certification mark “ITC certified quality
    • ITC has a proprietary quality mark “ITC certified quality“. The manufacturer can ask for a licence for using this mark for a product meeting high standards of quality and safety for users. The licence is conditioned by passing initial tests and continuous auditing of ability to keep up the quality of the production.
