How the Quality and Performance Mark Works
Choosing from five baseline quality tests; meeting or surpassing the baselines allow you to post and describe the test results on advertising materials, on the web and in other marketing channels. The five test areas include:  

  • Durability: Evaluates the product's range of conditions that it can handle and continue to function
  • Functionality: Evaluates the product's performance of main functions and features under normal use
  • Life Cycle: Under ideal conditions, the basic function of the product to a specified life end (How long it lasts in normal operation)
  • Usability: Assess the ease of use for intended tasks
  • Workmanship: Verify the physical characteristics of the product as indicators of high quality fabrication and handling techniques

Once the Quality and Performance Mark is issued, the certification is valid for one year; there are no requirements of follow up services.

Check/Plus Performance

In addition to the baseline quality tests, manufacturer's specific claims can also be tested through a sixth test called CheckPlus Performance. After the validation issued by Intertek, the claims can be posted in your advertising materials, point-of-purchase and the product packaging to differentiate your product from competitors in the marketplace.
