No, we are an independent test laboratory, meaning we only perform testing and do not grant certification. We can however assist you in obtaining certification from recognized certification agencies. Please note that to avoid a conflict of interest, certification should be independent from testing.
Testing duration depends on the specific type of test and the product itself. This can range from a couple of weeks for material characteristics testing, to months or even years for biodegradation testing. As these are microbial processes, we cannot predict the exact duration beforehand.
