Penomet is so far the only male enhancement product to be certified Toxin Free, and listed as an RoHs Class 1 device. SGS Issued their certificates, setting Penomet apart from most everyone else in the male enhancement industry. It is also CE Type 1 Medical Device, which leaves Penomet holding more independent certifications than about any other product out there.
The proof of medical quality is important to the company, but few people understand or appreciate what exactly it means to be SGS Tested and Certified. Especially people in the USA, since being tested and certified as a safe medical device isn't nearly as important as it is in say, Europe.
Ever wonder what would happen if you injured yourself using a product you bought from the store? What if you did, what would you do? Without being certified with the FDA, CE, SGS etc... there is no evidence the product has been tested or approved for any type of human use. You are left with an injury, and unbranded product made from a company that has no traceable assets.
So Who Exactly IS SGS?
SGS is an independent testing and inspection facility responsible for determining how many hazardous materials a consumer product contains. SGS essentially ensures a companies new product complies with all applicable national and international regulations. Penomet opted to be tested for the consumer trust factor, and were issued their certificates after SGS completed their testing of the Penomet pump and Gaiters.
SGS is responsible for testing hundreds of thousands of different products, and not all of them make the cut. They are responsible for issuing product recalls on behalf of the company who they certified.
Penomet's Compliance Certifications
The TEST Certification means Penomet has been tested by SGS for toxins and dangerous materials.
RoHS is the acronym for Restriction of Hazardous Substances. It's a mandate that restricts the use of hazardous materials. Since June 6, 2001 all products sold in the European market must be RoHS compliant. Any product that bears the RoHS Compliant test results has ensured their products contain no lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd), hexavalent chromium (CrVI), polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) or polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE). The testing utilizes X-ray fluorescence scanners for screening.
These two images mean Penomet is a safe, toxin free consumer product you can use with confidence. Sometimes you hear a story about some Chinese toy shipped to America that was dangerous for whatever reason- well the reason is almost always a failure to comply to product safety regulations.
What About The CE Certification?
The CE Medical Type 1 Device certification means Penomet has NO side effects, and has been approved for use in medical practice. This one is easy, buying a product that isn't CE Certified like imitation knockoffs means you have no recourse if you experience any issues from its use. Meeting the guidelines for these certifications aren't easy, if it was every home made eBay pump or extender would be certified. It involves choosing manufacturers intelligently, and implementing rigorous quality control.
No other hydropump on the market has all three. The medical grade gaiters, toxin free pump tube, both meet the highest quality standards imaginable. The penomet gaiters even need to be washed with the silicone safe gun shine oil because they are medical grade material. Because the folks over at Penomet value their brand and respect their product, they jumped through the hoops to be awarded these proofs of quality. No other male enhancement company can say that right now, and that speaks volumes to the responsibility they assume and the integrity they showcase to their customers.
