Testing to product standards - principles for test organisations

Testing a product for compliance with a standard or to substantiate other claims made by the manufacturer requires expertise and great attention to detail. This involves care in product handling, meeting prescribed conditions and ensuring systems are in place to assure test accuracy and validity.

These principles provide important information for testers who are commissioned by suppliers or the ACCC to test whether a product complies with a standard, or meets other claims.
