I’m pleased to announce an important milestone in the history of Contech Research – one that will strengthen our ability to provide the highest quality independent testing and product evaluation services.

In September 2008 The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) began publishing new accreditation procedures for children's products and established a time line for compliance.

On January 13th 2009 Contech Research received accreditation to perform the following CPSC testing:

16 C.R.F. Parts 1501 (small parts)
                            1508 (full size baby cribs)
                            1509 (non full size baby cribs)
                            1510 (rattles)
                            1511 (pacifiers)         

As new products are published in the coming year we shall continue to add said procedures to our scope of services. 

Baby bouncers, Walker and jumpers shall be added in March and any new requirements listed in the CPSC Children's Product Safety Rules shall be added when published in June.

Be assured that the overall operations of our company have remained unchanged. Contech Research is committed to maintaining the exceptionally high standards that test sponsors have come to expect since the company was founded over a quarter century ago. We look forward to continuing to serve as a valuable technological and research resource for your organization in the months and years to come.

If you have any questions or require further clarification, please feel free to contact me.
