Relocation of part of ATL 1004 - Physical Laboratory from the Central Laboratories of Louky Zlín to the workplace in the Svit 113th building

Dear clients. As of 09.11.2020, part of ATL 1004 - Physical Laboratory was completely relocated from the central laboratories of Louky Zlín to the ITC workplace in the Svit 113th building, Zlín. The original telephone numbers will be valid until 31.12.2020. At the same time, new telephone numbers will be launched next week, which will be published on the ITC website in the Contacts section. Now please contact specific employee of the physical testing laboratory by e-mail, mobile phone number, or you can contact Mrs. Jarmila Vyorálkova from the secretariat of the Physical Laboratory by phone +420 572 779 989 or e-mail jvyoralkova@itczlin.cz. Thank you for your understanding.

COMMISSION REGULATION (EU) 2020/1245 of 2nd September 2020 amending and correcting Regulation (EU) No 10/2011 on plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with food entered into force on 23rd September 2020

This regulation has significantly changed the scope of evaluation of elements and primary aromatic amines and the way of evaluation of articles for repeated use – HERE you can find more information. ITC labs are already prepared to test and evaluate the articles according to new rules.

new ICP spectrometer in ITC labs

Analytical laboratory has recently purchased new ICP spectrometer Agilent 5800. The spectrometer is intended for determination of elements in water solutions, leachates and mineralisates. It is used mainly for evaluation of food-contact materials, products for children, material analysis of plastics, rubbers and metals. Spectrometer can be also used for determination of elements, which are limited in electro-products by RoHS 3 directive. High sensitivity enable evaluation of products according to many national and European legislations.  


In autumn 2019 our laboratory of analytical chemistry purchased gas chromatograph Shimadzu GCMS QP 2020 NX with mass spectromecter and flame ionization detector, which is used for analysis of emission of organic substances (VOC) mainly for automotive materials.

Determination of VOC by this method meets the requirements:
- VW 50180 (CLP classification of VOC emission in accordance with Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 included)
- PV 3341
- VDA 277
- VCS 1027,2759

Laboratory is on the List of accepted service laboratories by the VW Group for test according to PV 3341!

Trade Fair AMPER 2020 - cancellation

Dear business friends, unfortunately, we have to inform you that the Fair Amper 2020 is cancelled due to the spreading disease COVID-19. For the fair administration is protecting the health of all involved an absolute priority. However, they would not be able to ensure this in the event of the fair being held at the original date, in particular by the inability to prevent the entry of persons at risk. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Bitumen testing laboratory


The bitumen testing laboratory is a part of the Accredited testing laboratory No. 1004 since 2001. Its main activity is to test bituminous binders applied both hot and cold. The laboratory acts as a reference workplace and disposes of about 50 accredited testing procedures.  Thanks to continuous improvement of the equipment and technical level of personnel, the laboratory shares many tasks of the Ministry of Transport of the Czech Republic and is considered to be a respected workplace in the highway construction department.
