Estimating the number of tests for each consumer product
1) Determine the number of different types of metal and non-metal parts to the product. These can include screws, plastic components, silicone, paint. These will require a separate lead test in most cases.
2) If the children’s product is likely to be chewed or sucked then a toxic metals test may be required.
3) Each type of plastic will require a phthalate test.
