Bureau Veritas Consumer Products Services UK gains accreditation for candle testing


Bureau Veritas Consumer Products Services UK, whose testing laboratory is located in Warrington, Cheshire, is pleased to announce it has been accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) to test for the compliance and safety of candles. As candles have grown in popularity with consumers over the past decade, so has the potential safety concern with their use. It is said that consumers are purchasing candles more frequently now as focal points for their home décor, as a means of scenting the air in a room, for aromatherapy-like relaxation, stress reduction or for parties and celebrations. In this environment, and whilst candles remain one of the main sources of house fires, testing has become increasingly important to retailers, importers and manufacturers, to minimise risk and ensure that the quality and performance of their candles meet the expectations of today’s consumer.
