SATRA has a dedicated purpose-built candle testing laboratory accredited to ISO 17025 by UKAS, to test the safety of all types of candles and candle holders, measuring candle burn performance and sooting.

SATRA carries out tests to help manufacturers, suppliers and retailers demonstrate due diligence and assist with meeting the requirements of the General Product Safety Directive. The fire safety tests have been designed to assess the safety of a candle when tested in accordance with the user’s instructions and assess burn time, burning performance, flame heights, wax usage, wax spillage, wick characteristics, advice on labelling and foreseeable use and misuse.

SATRA is testing to the updated versions of the following European Standards:

EN 15426:2018 Specification for sooting behaviour

EN 15493:2019 Specification for fire safety

EN 15494:2019 Product safety label

ASTM Standards

SATRA can also offer customers looking to market products in America testing to ASTM standards, including F2417-17 Standard Specification for Candle Fire Safety and F2058-07 Standard Specification for Candle Fire Safety Labelling.
