EN 455-4 Accelerated Shelf Life tests for Medical Gloves

#1
Do you know of a lab who can do this testing, please?
Following end users' greater involvement in certification due to Covid, there seems to be an upsurge in requests for EN 455-4 Accelerated Shelf Life tests for Medical Gloves, where previously declarations were accepted.

A quick google search (en455 testing laboratory) identifies a number of labs who can do the testing, have you exhausted these?

have you exhausted these?
Hi Chris, I'm finding a lot of the labs list the test as a requirement so it shows up on the search, but they don't offer it. (e.g. SMTL, SATRA) I'm working through them at the moment. Other entertaining diversions include labs that offer it but don't hold ISO 17025. The two accredited labs in China won't answer my enquiries (Sudatest and Tianjin Customs Lab). The lab I normally use can't start testing until October after their current run and calibration... I'm sure I will find one eventually but was hoping someone had a lab they were happy to share that might have capacity now (or as the client likes to call it, yesterday)
