Third-party certification means that an independent organization has reviewed the manufacturing process of a product and has independently determined that the final product complies with specific standards for safety, quality, or performance.
This process increases customer confidence as it is a voluntary certification program based on globally-recognized standards. This testing typically includes comprehensive formulation/material reviews, testing (both destructive and non-destructive), and facility inspections. After the products have been certified, they are then permitted to use the certifier’s mark on their packaging to help consumers and other buyers make educated purchasing decisions.
These certifications include yearly reviews against the newest standards as well continuous facility inspections to ensure that nothing has changed in the manufacturing process or bill of materials. This process requires a significant investment from the company looking to get certification.
