Toy testing facility SGS sets up new units in Vietnam and India

SGS, the toy testing, verification and inspection company has launched new testing capabilities in Vietnam and India.

SGS already has a number of testing facilities located in key manufacturing zones and transit points around the world and according to its latest statement is continuing to invest and upgrade its toy testing laboratories to meet rising levels of client demand.

In northern Vietnam, SGS’ new toy laboratory in Hai Phong is now ISO 17025 accredited by the Vietnamese accreditation body VILAS. The local team will now be able to serve the market requirements for the US, Europe, Canada, Japan, Austria, New Zealand and Vietnam.

Meanwhile, in India, SGS has rooted itself in Manesar to test for local and international markets. The lab holds local NABL accreditation, which has been mandatory for toys imported to India since September 2017.

SGS toy safety testing services span the EU toy directive and the US Consumer Product Safety Act.
