    Substance classification

    According to current regulations – e.g. hazardous substances and hazard goods transport legislation, REACH and GHS – dangerous substances must be classified, labelled and registered. We can determine the physical-chemical parameters needed for those classification purposes in our own laboratory, thus supporting our customers in the event of registering and classifying new substances as well as in the event of reclassifications.

    To ensure the safety of substances during their handling, use, storage, and transport, specific procedures for determining characteristic data are required according to the type of hazard and hazard potential, and are prescribed by the relevant regulations. We have tests from the following regulations ready for use at all times for this purpose:

    | UN Transport Law (UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods)
    | GHS (Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals),
    | CLP (Regulation on Classification, Labelling and Packaging of Substances and Mixtures)
