Your trusted testing partner for meeting chemical and hazardous substances requirements
Chemicals and chemical substances are an essential part of modern life. Almost every manufacturing process employs chemicals to convert raw materials such as oil, natural gas, air, water, metals and minerals into finished products. From their use in applications as diverse as medicine and agriculture to industrial and consumer processes and products, chemicals are an instrumental element in the quality of life throughout the world.
However, despite their undisputed importance, the widespread use of chemicals has the potential to adversely impact human health and the environment. These and other risks have prompted the introduction of governmental initiatives and regulations in major industrialised countries around the world, along with a number of voluntary industry initiatives, to restrict the use of potentially harmful chemicals and chemical substances and to enhance the safe use and disposal of chemicals.
