Overview

Ask three testing houses and you might get 3 different lists of applicable tests since each one interprets regulations in its own way.

They don’t always clarify what is mandatory vs. suggested tests (since they want to sell you more testing).

They ignore elements that could be taken into consideration (e.g. certifications of certain materials, the fact that a key component comes from an international manufacturer…) since they decrease risk.

If your order includes several SKUs that are different but share some materials and/or colors, setting up a ‘reasonable’ testing plan (rather than testing every single SKU fully) can often cut costs by more than half while keeping risks down.

If your product is out of the ordinary or is across 2 sensitive categories (e.g. food contact and for children), they might forget some critical standards. This is a common issue due to the way they manage their databases.
