Chemical Analysis & Testing

Guarantee the quality of your products

Global expertise in chemical analysis testing for industry

TÜV SÜD provides chemical analysis testing to help industry and manufacturers comply with the ever-growing list of national, regional, and international regulations on the safe use of chemicals. To ensure they comply with these laws, companies are required to carry out extensive chemical analysis testing throughout the supply chain. This is easier said than done in a global market, and so compliance can be difficult to achieve.

What is chemical analysis testing?

Chemical testing and analysis is the process of identifying, characterising, and understanding the quality of materials and substances that are used in products, manufacturing, and industrial processes.

Why is chemical analysis testing important?

Compliance with the many national, regional, and international regulations on the safe and proper use of chemicals is essential for a growing business:

  • Maintain reputation: a firm that is found to use unsafe substances anywhere in the supply chain risks reputational damage
  • Avoid fines: many regulations come with heavy fines for firms that are seen to ignore the rules
  • Ensure access to markets: it may be impossible to access certain jurisdictions if a product contains banned substances.
