Testing for fire danger:

  • certification tests to determine the toxicity of combustion products of substances and materials that are used as building and finishing
  • conduct tests to determine the toxicity of combustion products of industrial wastes to determine their degree of hazard class
Toxicity study of the gas phase formed in the pyrolysis of materials of different composition

The accreditation laboratory for independence and technical competence under the requirements of STB ISO / IEC 17025 in the State Standard of the Republic of Belarus.
Accreditation certificate registration number of BY/112 Date of issue 08.09.2003 primary certificate of re-accreditation was carried out by the accreditation body (BelGIM) in September 2006 and September 2009.
The RL has a quality management system that meets the requirements of STB ISO / IEC 17025-2007 "General requirements for the technical competence of testing and calibration laboratories".
