API are the toy quality experts of the WORMS SAFETY Alliance. Established in 1994, API is trusted by some of the biggest retailers in Europe. We understand compliance comes first, but also that new challenges require a new approach. We can help you to stay ahead of the game, so you can create better products that are safe to use. We secure the safety and quality of our customers products via laboratory testing (compliance and performance), TCF (Product Technical Compliance File), audits, inspections and sustainability solutions made for this industry.
API offer comprehensive laboratory testing for all international toys tests at our labs in Asia and Europe. We are accredited (COFRAC, EN 71-1/2/3).
We understand the new risks (sustainable materials, chemical management), and we can go further to make your products safer.
From product design and development through to shipping, API assess supplier and toy compliance with these solutions:
Ensure your recycled polyester claims are genuine.
Following years of research, Worms Safety Laboratories have pioneered an innovative solution to detect and quantify rPET in textiles. Increasing regulation and consumer expectations has increased the need for substantiation of claims. Even if you know your supply chain, relying solely on someone else’s information and declarations is risky. Accurate scientific testing is the only way to verify the genuineness and amount of rPET within raw materials.
To support our partners in chemical risk management, we developed Chem Scan Check™ (CSC), which scans for more than 285 hazardous chemical substances in one go. Instead of waiting and paying for multiple tests on expected chemicals with a traditional testing approach, we offer our partners wider visibility, in 72 hours so they can anticipate and mitigate risk.
A chemical scan that gives you visibility on almost all hazardous substances to help prevent ‘unexpected’ non-compliance risks in only 72h.
