Bicycle Helmet Test Labs

Summary: CPSC publishes a list of US Government accredited labs for testing helmets to the CPSC standard.

Test Labs

The Consumer Product Safety Commission has the official US Government list of labs certified by them for testing to the CPSC bike helmet standard. It is kept current by CPSC, so we no longer list individual labs.

To get the list, click on "16 CFR Part 1203, Bicycle Helmets" in the window and then the Narrow List button to narrow the search. There is contact info for each lab.

Test Lab Equipment

If you need helmet test lab equipment, we only know of a few suppliers. There may be others.
