Don’t accept inferior substitutes! Contact CertAssure today to test and certify your leather.

TexAssure™ Certification

Fabrics and face-coated synthetic textiles contribute significantly to the durability and long-term look of a product. Abnormal wearing, fading or finish failure of the textiles can cut short the life of an otherwise good product – resulting in customer dissatisfaction. Additionally as the surfaces most often in skin contact with users, it is important to have assurance the textiles conform with toxic chemical standards.

CertAssure’s TexAssure™ Certification provides manufacturers, importers and retailers with assurance the textiles used on a product will comply with the necessary standards to be fit for purpose for their customers.

Textiles submitted to CertAssure are tested to the relevant standards based on the textile construction and must compliant with strict criteria for durability (including colourfastness depending on the end-use of the textile) and toxic chemicals. CertAssure certifies textiles used on furniture, bedding, decorator and accessories.

Due Diligence Assessment

There are a multitude of requirements to access to Australian and New Zealand marketplaces including compliance with Australian, International, industry and regulatory standards. It can be difficult to understand all the labelling, testing and certification that products must have before they can be imported or sold to consumers. Unknowingly selling non-compliant products substantially increases the risk to your business. CertAssure’s Due Diligence Assessments can make this process far easier by clearly identifying the applicable requirements for a product and evaluating the product’s compliance with them.

By leveraging our specialised product knowledge, CertAssure can further reduce risk by customising our due diligence solutions, tailoring criteria to the commercial needs of your business.

So if you are looking to manufacture, import or retail a product, contact CertAssure to assist you with performing product Due Diligence.
