Standards & Regulations
Standards are an extremely important element of most industries. They provide an objective measure of the performance of products or services that can be relied upon by the consuming public. This is particularly important for products where performance is not readily observable at the time of purchase. Degradation and biodegradation of plastics is one such area. The user does not know if the product works until long after he purchases the product and, even then, probably does not know since he has by that time discarded the product.
