Our automotive odour testing is thorough and comprehensive, and we also offer individual conditioning and evaluation procedures.

We will evaluate the whole vehicle interior, to determine the overall odour character of the vehicle. Sample preparation takes place in accordance with ISO 12219-1:2012. This test can also be used to find any ‘interfering’ components that may cause an undesirable odour.
