Terms and Conditions

Testing services subject to terms and conditions available on request. All work carried out on a completely confidential and impartial basis. Clients are respectfully reminded that staff cannot be held responsible for unconfirmed telephone instructions. All requests should be confirmed in writing.

Clients should fill in the test request sheet with all relevant information such as quality, reference numbers, fibre composition, end use, retailer etc. as failure
to do so may result in a delay in completion of the report, wrong tests being carried out and possible additional costs.

Where tests are specifically made on the face of the cloth, it is essential the material is clearly marked accordingly. While every care is taken, staff can't be held responsible for misjudgment on unmarked cloths.

The final test report will not be issued until all tests are complete, faxed results may be given on request. Duplicate certificates can be issues but charges may be levied depending on the time involved.
