Market Control Laboratory


Plant protection products sold in Switzerland must meet various quality requirements so that safety for users, crops and the environment as well as product suitability can be ensured. PPPs sold in Switzerland are inspected annually in a national market control. In our ISO 17025-accredited laboratory the sampled products are examined and test reports drafted for the attention of the Cantonal chemical agencies. The Cantons are responsible for enforcement in the case of identified shortcomings or deviations.
