The Laboratory received its operating licence for the provision of services on 26 April 2019 (NÉBIH [National Food Chain Safety Office] registration number: HE/ÉBÁO/25-67/2019). We provide services in three main areas:

I. Laboratory testing to determine the data to be submitted for the licensing of products with plant protection effects that do not qualify as plant protection products, protective substances, synergists, excipients, adjuvants, equipment and materials used in plant protection, and macro-organisms (Annex 9 to Decree 89/2004 of 15 May of the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development). The laboratory measures the physical, chemical, and technical parameters of these products. These include the following:

Colour according to the EPA OPPTS 830.6302 testing method
Odour according to the EPA OPPTS 830.6304 testing method
State according to the EPA OPPTS 830.6303 testing method
