Reduce exposure to Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons
Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) are a group of chemical compounds that are known to contain harmful substances, some of which may be carcinogenic. PAHs may be present in black pigments in polymers and plastics - products made from fossil oils and petroleum aromatic oils. Prolonged exposure to PAHs can pose health hazards to the human body. The testing of PAHs is a mandatory requirement.
TÜV SÜD provides third party independent tests to help manufacturers meet the mandatory testing requirement. In addition, TÜV SÜD's voluntary GS Mark certification scheme helps manufacturers enhance their products' marketability overseas.
The PAHs testing services include:
- Reviewing and certifying products that comply with PAHs requirements
