Tested and Certified: Ever Wondered How We Test Our Condoms?

In the realm of intimate health and safety, EXS Condoms distinguishes itself as a brand dedicated to delivering top-notch quality and innovation. Our unwavering commitment to safety is epitomised through a meticulous process of testing and certifying our products, ensuring the utmost reliability of every condom we produce. In this article, we share details about our rigorous testing process, and how we certify that our products are safe for you to use.

Quality Assurance, Traceability, and the Significance of the CE Mark

At the core of EXS Condoms' commitment to excellence lies our stringent quality assurance and traceability practices. Collaborating with trusted supply chain partners, experts in the manufacturing field, we guarantee the highest standards in product quality. And, all of our lubricants and condoms proudly bear the CE mark, the European standard for selling, signifying compliance with both European and UK regulations.

 

What is a CE Mark?

A certification mark indicating compliance with essential health, safety, and environmental protection standards within the European Economic Area (EEA).

 

Implications of the CE Mark for EXS Condoms

  • Quality Assured: Signifying thorough testing and assessment to meet essential European directives.
  • Legally Compliant: Indicating compliance with European and UK regulations for legal distribution and sale.
  • Traceable and Accountable: Demonstrating commitment to traceability and accountability through regular audits and adherence to stringent standards.

To ensure the integrity of our supply chain, the Managing Director of LTC conducts regular audits. LTC Healthcare, the brand owner of EXS, maintains its own quality management system, surpassing industry standards and validating our commitment to producing premium products.

The EXS Condoms team emphasises, "We believe in what we do, and will only produce safe products that offer truly innovative solutions for our customers."

Ensuring the safety and reliability of EXS Condoms involves adherence to legal requirements and leveraging an illustrious manufacturing heritage. Our factory, with over 100 years of experience in condom manufacturing, produces over 6 billion condoms annually, showcasing a dedication to safe sex and being intimately prepared.

The testing process employed by EXS is a meticulous 3-stage procedure, encompassing electronic testing, air burst testing, and water fill testing. This comprehensive approach ensures that every condom meets the highest manufacturing standards.

Each stage serves a specific purpose, collectively guaranteeing that every product leaving the manufacturing facility meets and exceeds the highest quality standards, and is ready to keep you safe.
