Dear Clients, we would like to thank you for your confidence in cooperation with our company during the past year.

We would like to use this opportunity to wish you good health, happiness and success in 2019, both personally and professionally.

new gas chromatograph in laboratory of analytical chemistry

In August 2018 our laboratory of analytical chemistry purchased a brand new gas chromatograph, mass spectrometer Shimadzu GCMS-QP2020, equipped by a thermal desorption unit TD-30, which is used for analysis of emissions of organic substances.


The spectrometer has a superior sensitivity for organic substances in orders of micro-grams per kg of sample. The system is mainly used for analysis of volatile organic substances (VOC) and condensable substances (FOG) according to the requirements of automotive standard VDA 278, but also for emission measurement of polymer samples to investigate additive system, smell, NIAS (not-intentionally added substances in plastics) etc.


Contact for such types of analysis: Franky Puype, phone: +420 577 601 703, e-mail: fpuype@itczlin.cz

New general director

Announcement of change in ITC management.


Since September 1, 2018, new general director of the Institute for Testing and Certification has been appointed Mgr. Jiri Hes.


RNDr. Radomir Cevelik remains in the position of Board of Directors Vice President.

Determination of phthalic acid esters according to requirements of CPSC

In June 2018 analytical laboratory ITC accredited new procedure for determination of phthalic acid esters in consumer products according to requirements of CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) No. CPSC-CH-C1001-09.4. New standard came in force on April 25, 2018 and released old one No. CPSC-CH-C1001-09.3.

More information concerning phthalate testing are available here

Analytical laboratory had implemented new methods for testing of volatile organic compounds (VOC) from car interior parts according to Hyundai and Toyota requirements, namely

Hyundai Engineering Standard - MS300-55 - Determination of volatile organic compounds from moulded parts in the vehicle interior


Toyota Engineering Standard TSM 0508G – Volatile component measurement method using sampling bag

Tests are using sampling bags for emission tests, followed by chromatography determination of emitted substances.

Personal Protective Equipment

Testing » Tested products

Placing of personal protective equipment on the EU market cannot do without very thorough laboratory testing that verifies the degree of protection of the respective product or material against the declared risks. ITC offers a wide range of tests according to harmonized standards, which are used as underlying criteria to assess compliance with the requirements of the European Directive 89/686/EEC and of the Government Regulation No. 21/2003 Coll. laying down technical requirements for personal protective equipment.
