Hi just wondered if anyone could help. Do any candle makers out source the testing of their candles or do you do it yourselves? Does it meet the European standards of done in house? Bs en15493 and bs en15426 are the ones I mean

I'm not in the UK to tell you about European standards, but I do both. I test myself and once I feel they are ready, I have friends test them and give them a list of notes to comment on to send back to me so I can either put it to production or continue to remake until it's good.
I believe @LilyJo is in the UK and makes candles, and maybe she can come in and let you know about the EU Standards.

Hi, I think the general approach is to test in house thoroughly and keep comprehensive records. As long as you test, comply with CLP requirements and have the correct insurance you should be OK.
