Will my COA be accepted by Amazon?

Aemtek is an ISO accredited, reputable laboratory with over 15 years of experience testing for the food, environmental, and cosmetic industries. Although it cannot be guaranteed that Amazon will accept any individual COA, we are familiar with their documentation requirements and have put together a panel of tests that includes the analyses retailers will look for on a Certificate of Analysis (COA) to ensure product safety and quality. If you do have any issues with your COA, please reach out to us at labdata@aemtek.com and we will work with you to address the issue.

How will I get my results?

Once all tests have been completed, your results (the COA) will be email to the email-address that you provided on your Chain of Custody (COC) Form.

What is a COA and how do I get one for my product?

A Certificate of Analysis, or COA, is a document that establishes that a product was analytically tested and meets specifications of safety and quality. Retailers require a COA from suppliers to ensure that the supplier has done their due-diligence to ensure the product remains safe for consumers, and the quality is as expected. To obtain a COA, samples may be sent to AEMTEK for analysis, where we will perform the standard cosmetic testing panel. Results will be issued in the form of a Certificate of Analysis for each individual product. The standard panel includes the most common tests used to determine product safety and quality for cosmetics.

When will I receive my results?

Results will be sent once all tests are completed. Therefore, your turnaround time will be that of the requested test with the longest duration.

For Cosmetic COA testing the turnaround time is 14 days. If method suitability is needed, turnaround time could be extended to 3 weeks.
