Products such as home textiles, mattresses, clothes, floor coverings, or building materials can all contain toxins that are a risk to our health by polluting our living spaces and indoor air. With our test marks, health-conscious consumers will know they're making the right choice when they select your products. For leaders in the prefabricated housing industry, our test mark is now a widely accepted way of showing that buildings have been tested for harmful substances and are non toxic.
With TÜV Rheinland's test mark "Tested for harmful substances", you can:
Before analyzing the product for toxins, we determine how the product is manufactured and which chemicals are used in the production process. The test itself covers all known, potentially harmful substances, possible contamination, and the materials used to preserve the product during shipment and storage. This lets us ensure that the product has been tested for all relevant toxins. To determine the potential risk of exposure to a toxin, test conditions are chosen based on how consumers are likely to use the product.
The test mark "Tested for harmful substances" on a product indicates that:
The TOXPROOF test mark confirms that the product underwent chemical testing for various harmful substances (e.g. heavy metals, pesticides, plasticizers) and that the product holds no health risks for humans or animals according to the current state of knowledge and experience.
In addition to the TOXPROOF test mark, products can also be certified "suitable for sufferers of allergies." Depending on the type of product, this can refer to the minimization of allergens in the product itself (e. g. nickel-free jewelry) or its effectiveness in retaining allergens (e.g. pollen filter). The test mark confirms that the product meets TÜV Rheinland's test criteria and that the risk of an allergic reaction is minimized when this product is used. Comprehensive protection against all allergies cannot be guaranteed because there are so many types of allergy.
