GOED Randomized Testing Program

GOED conducts market surveillance by randomly testing our members’ retail products from markets around the world. GOED initiated the program in July of 2012 with a focus on contaminant testing, and expanded its testing in August 2013 to include the full set of parameters in our GOED Monograph. The program was paused due to lack of resources but was reinstated in 2019.

Under the infrastructure of the program GOED aims to test 24 products per year. Members are selected for testing using a random number generator and then one of their products is purchased at a retail store, from the company website or via the internet. 

While this program is applicable to all GOED members, it is not directly linked to GOED's Proud Member Logo program.
