Proficiency testing “Consumer goods / packaging”

The proficiency testing program for consumer goods and packaging offers laboratories a choice of over 100 proficiency testing schemes in a wide range of matrices. All important disciplines are covered:


  • various consumer goods, as well as contamination through packaging

Organoleptic (sensory)

  • Sensory testing of packaging materials / paper / cardboard, threshold testing

The proficiency tests in the field of packaging cover a very wide range of test parameters. The main focus is on the migration of plastic films and the detection of mineral oil in food and packaging. The proficiency tests in the field of consumer goods consider both body contact and food contact. Here, parameters and substances are usually requested that may only be present in limited quantities in contact with humans (e.g. textiles, cosmetics, jewelry) or food. Printing inks, toys, kitchen utensils and adhesives, to name a few examples, also belong to this field.
