GLP test facility
Before chemical products such as pesticides, cosmetics, biocides, and industrial chemicals can marketed, they must undergo numerous safety tests to prevent risks to humans, animals, and the environment.
Such tests are to be carried out in accordance with the applicable regulations (e.g. Plant Protection Directive) and the principles of Good Laboratory Practice (GLP). Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) is a quality assurance system that deals with the organizational process and framework conditions for tests on chemical products.
After a successful inspection in 2010, our test laboratory successfully underwent additional inspections by the Department of Chemical Safety and GLP for the Darmstadt Regional Council in 2013, 2016 and 2019. Approval as a GLP facility was extended and expanded from category 1 to categories 1 and 5.
As a GLP test facility, we offer the following tests under GLP (Good Laboratory Practice) as well as without GLP. Both our GLP and REACH tests include preparation of a report in compliance with IUCLID. Under GLP, quality assurance and the archiving of retained samples and all documents is also included.
We test in accordance with various recognized regulations, including EC Regulation 440/2008, the OECD and OCSPP guidelines, UN transport law and thus also CLP Regulation 1272/2008 (GHS), CIPAC regulations, etc.
With the exception of a few tests, our range of services covers all the physical and chemical tests required for the registration of chemicals.
We also offer a variety of CIPAC test methods as well as other methods such as the acid or alkaline reserve.
