Ecotoxicological Substance Analyses
The results of ecotoxicological testing are among the mandatory documents to be submitted for the registration and authorisation of various substances. The scope is defined in the statutory provisions for the individual product groups. These tests must be performed according to GLP principles due to their relevance to environmental safety.
Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) is a quality assurance system; authorisation bodies in the OECD mutually accept tests and results performed and obtained according to this system.
The facility in Leipzig-Markkleeberg is accredited to conduct these tests according to GLP.
Accreditation includes the following 3 test categories:
Test category 1
Test for the determination of physiochemical characteristics and assay
Test category 4
Ecotoxicological testing for the determination of impact on aquatic and terrestrial organisms
Test category 5
Test for behaviour in the soil, water and air; test for bioaccumulation and metabolisation
All tests are performed according to the latest OECD Guidelines.
The necessary tests for the authorisation of chemicals based on the REACH Regulation are also performed according to the EU Test Methods Regulation.
The substance identification data required for registration are also obtained and reported in line with REACH.
