Fulfill legal requirements

Car care products and car cleaners are consumer goods in the sense of the German Food and Feed Code (LFGB). They are subject to many chemical regulations. In addition, there are requirements for labeling, safety data sheets (GHS / CLP) and reporting obligations (UFI codes). We support you in all aspects of labeling and in questions regarding the marketability of your products.

Achieving optimum effect

Customer expectations and requirements for material protection and effectiveness of cleaning and care products are also high. The accredited DEKRA laboratory offers you a wide range of laboratory tests and application tests with recognized and self-developed test methods for the corresponding proofs.
