Comparative tests


Comparative tests are performed to assess products according to different quality criteria, such as performance, durability, mechanical resistance, energy consumption, safety or ergonomics. Products are compared with similar products or with a selected reference product.

Comparative tests are mainly intended for:

  • distributors who need to select products for reference listing
  • manufacturers who wish to position themselves in relation to competitors
  • consumer research organizations which publish the results of these tests.
