Identification of material hazards, their labelling and safe transportation.
Companies involved in the manufacture and distribution of chemicals such as household products, pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, biocides and plant protection products, need to establish whether their product is hazardous and if so how to label and package the material so as to ensure safe transportation.
DEKRA offers a vast array of physico-chemical properties tests with the ability to arrange and co-ordinate toxicological and eco-toxicological studies on materials for formal regulatory classification. Our resident experts can provide the appropriate risk assessments for formal regulatory submissions.
