Chemical testing for restricted substances is essential to provide your customers with assurance that the chemical content of consumer products complies with the necessary chemical legislation.

Testing products for restricted substances also protects your business and workers in the supply chain from exposure to potentially harmful chemicals. In addition, chemical testing helps to protect the environment which can be affected by both manufacturing effluent and wastewater.

BLC provides a wide range of chemical testing and chemical management services for brands, retailers, manufacturers and chemical companies in the supply chain. BLC is an internationally accredited chemical testing laboratory and holds accreditations from UKAS (0076), ILAC and CPSC (1049).
