With an ever increasing demand for less expensive goods and subsequent supply of products from abroad, the presence and threat of consumer goods containing lead and/or cadmium is prevalent and a frequent focus of media attention.
Importers, distributors and retailers rely on S-E-A to assist in protecting their brand and bottom line.
S-E-A is accredited by A2LA to the ISO/IEC 17025:2005 standard in the area of lead and cadmium analysis for various consumer products as required by 16 CFR 1303. The scope of S-E-A's accreditation includes the analysis of lead in dried paint film, lead and cadmium in surface coatings, lead and cadmium in children's metal products and lead and cadmium analysis in metal substrates and the determination of lead in drinking water. We conduct these analyses using ASTM, CPSC and EPA sample preparation and analytical testing methodologies. A copy of our scope of accreditation certificate (2894.01) is available upon request.
