Supporting the safe and accurate storage, transport, labelling and use of chemicals

From garden pesticides and paints to massive industrial processing plants, chemicals are used every day by individuals and businesses for positive outcomes. Whether it is on the micro scale of chemical analysis or the macro scale of petrochemical processing, chemicals are a vital part of daily life. But using chemicals carries risks and is therefore subject to considerable levels of control, whether the chemicals are in a lab test tube or a commercial pressure system.

To handle chemicals safely requires proficiency, accuracy, conformity and compliance – all of which are underpinned by accredited inspection, measurement, testing and certification assessments.
