Toxicology test
Bacteria-inhibiting test
Anti-bacteria/mold
Requirements for air purifiers releasing harmful substances: ozone concentration, ultraviolet intensity, TVOC density, PM10 density
Anti-bacteria performance
Above all, the anti-bacteria, disinfection performance certification for refrigerators, washing machines and air-conditioners should meet the hygiene and safety requirements of GB 21551.1-2008.
