The Laboratory carries out various analysis and tests for the classification of dangerous goods with respect to transport regulations.

Tests for the definition of chemical-physical, toxicological and ecotoxicological properties; classification and regulation of the packaging and labeling of hazardous substances and tests for the classification of substances for transport purposes according to the ADR, IATA, RID and IMDG regulations.

The tests performed follow the standards proposed by UN Transportation of Dangerous Goods, Manual of Tests and Criteria.
