The Product Testing Label, developed by experts from the testing laboratory TÜV SÜD ELAB GmbH, offers consumers transparency regarding regular checks of all important product properties that determine quality and value.

Since the separation from the TÜV SÜD Group, the Product Testing Label has been continued by ELAB Analytik GmbH with consistently high-quality standards as an innovative testing concept.

The focus is on regular analyses of selected quality parameters for the products listed below. This is carried out by the ELAB Analytik GmbH laboratory as external and independent quality control.

The laboratory takes random samples according to a defined test plan, either from stock or products in circulation. This ensures the independence of the tests.

The Product Testing Label supplements the manufacturer’s quality control measures and provides the manufacturer with important additional information regarding compliance with all tested product properties.
