Intertek, a leading quality solutions provider to industries worldwide, announced the launch of a centralized, Chemical Testing SuperCenter in the Chicagoland area.

The SuperCenter offers chemical testing to ensure product compliance to regulations such as EU’s Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS and RoHS2), Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemical substances (REACH) and in the U.S. the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) and state regulations including California’s Proposition 65, to name a few.

The SuperCenter serves a variety of Intertek’s customers across industries facing stringent state, federal and global chemical testing regulations and standards, including appliances and electronics, building products, textiles and apparel, medical devices, housewares, furniture, toys and children’s products, footwear and accessories, transportation technologies, lighting and wireless systems.
