Intertek Launches US CPSIA for iPad, iPhone Application

Applications allow users safe and full use of mobile device features

Published: Friday, October 15, 2010 - 14:25

(Intertek: Hong Kong and Oak Brook, IL) -- Intertek, a global provider of quality and safety solutions serving a wide range of industries around the world, announces the launch of US CPSIA for iPad, a mobile digital device application for the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act for iPad users. Earlier this year, Intertek successfully launched the US CPSIA for iPhone and the Textile Compliance Guide EU  for iPhone. The US CPSIA for iPad was developed as a quick reference resource for consumer goods safety and compliance industry professionals and is now available to download for free at the online Apple App Store.

The new US CPSIA for iPad is specially designed to take full advantage of the increased functionality offered by the iPad. The application features an enhanced interface that allows quicker access to practical and valuable industry resources, providing professionals with a powerful database at the touch of a screen.

Like its iPhone counterpart, Intertek’s US CPSIA for iPad contains the content of the safety improvement act by section and in full text, supplemented with frequently asked questions about compliance and safety testing requirements. The CPSIA is designed to allow the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to better regulate the safety of products sold in the United States. A list of CPSC-accredited testing laboratories in different continents with contact information and testing scope is also available in the application.

Meanwhile, downloads of Intertek’s Textile Compliance Guide EU and US CPSIA iPhone have surpassed 1,000 in less than two months, making the applications two of the most popular in the industry.

To better answer to the needs of industry professionals, Intertek will continue to develop additional applications for iPhone and iPad mobile digital devices.
