At Impak, we work with the world’s most respected third-party organizations in the testing, inspection, and certification (TIC) sector. Here, we provide a broad overview of the companies we entrust to conduct our client’s packaging performance testing:
• Bureau Veritas
• TÜV Rhineland
In the packaging industry, performance tests are conducted to ensure smart and sturdy package engineering, high-quality materials, sustainability, safety, and cost.
Performance testing describes the process whereby your packaging materials are subjected to various instruments, conditions, and scenarios. Such packaging testing services may include examinations of a product’s durability, strength, longevity, and other relevant TIC standards.
Arguably the world’s leading TIC company, SGS represents the gold standard in the industry with thousands of locations around the globe. Founded in France in 1878, SGS began as a thought leader in the shipping industry and has remained so for nearly 150 years.
Impak is proud of our relationship with SGS, a like-minded company, that values sustainability and the welfare of its employees as much as the accuracy of its findings. Whether an organizational audit/ social audit or product testing project, Impak welcomes SGS as an extension of the team.
Founded 50 years before SGS, Bureau Veritas remains a dominant force in the TIC sector. Today it is a multinational corporation with base operations in over 140 parts of the world.
Sustainability is a goal embedded in Bureau Veritas’ company mission. The company audits packaging performance on international standards and/or internal standards related to topics like quality and safety.
TÜV Rhineland is another entity whose mission of safety and quality began more than 150 years ago and still holds strong today. Since 2006, the company has been a proud member of the United Nations Global Compact, an initiative committed to sustainability and battling corruption.
In partnership with Impak, their experts test and certify products according to client parameters and international safety standards. By doing so, TÜV Rhineland continues its long legacy of helping organizations maintain product-specific compliance and achieve certification.
The importance of package performance testing cannot be overstated. This is why you need to work with a leader who has the experience and the network to ensure you get accurate results regarding the safety, durability, and functionality of your packaging. Compliance with standards is key to building a solid, trustworthy reputation for your brand. Leverage a partnership with Impak Retail and protect the level of trust your brand has established.
