Ecotoxicological Material Tests

Überprüfung von Fischeiern mi dem Mikroskop

Authorities all over the world demand extensive ecotoxicological datasets before substances can be registered, approved and/or evaluated. In the European Union, for example, industrial chemicals have to be registered in accordance with the REACH Regulation (EC) No 1907/2008. This defines, in Annexes VII through X, which studies are to be carried out, depending on the tonnage produced or used.

Which studies need to be carried out? Which studies can be dispensed with in justified cases? How can the required studies be carried out in a targeted way?

The experts in CURRENTA’s ecotoxicology laboratory and Product Safety department are there to provide you with advice and support in everything from planning and conducting tests to evaluating and consolidating the results in accordance with the specifications of the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) – and all from a single source.

The corresponding chemical analyses for your studies are carried out by qualified analysts in competent analytical laboratories. As a result, we can also offer you a high level of expertise in this regard, e.g. for complex substances (UVCB), and develop methods that enable even trace quantities to be analyzed if necessary.

Thanks to our many years of expertise, we can support you and do our bit to ensure your registration is successful.
