Together with SP Swedish National Testing and Research Institute, ITC is a second body authorized by the International Floorball Federation (IFF - http://www.floorball.org) as a certification body to evaluate floorball equipment. The testing process is administratively completed by the issue of a certificate in the SP Swedish institute and by purchasing the certification markings (for more detailed information see the Guide for Clients below). ITC cooperates closely with the Czech Floorball Union (ČFBU), which represents Czech floorball at the international level.

ITC provides testing of samples and the necessary conformity assessment with the requirements of the Material Regulations exclusively in its own laboratories as the IFF rules do not allow the taking over of the results of other laboratories. The scope of testing for the particular types of equipment is specified in the following table together, indicating also the articles of the Material Regulations (MR) applicable to the respective type. ITC issues a Test Report in printed and CD-ROM version containing an evaluation of whether or not the tested product meets all the applicable requirements of the Material Regulations. The Test Report is always issued by ITC in Czech and English language. The report can also be issued in other languages upon agreement with ITC.
