As a senior scientific and technical federal institute with responsibility to the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK), BAM conducts testing and research and provides advice on the protection of people, property and the environment. BAM has its headquarters in Berlin and has also been operating a Test Site for Technical Safety (Testgelände Technische Sicherheit - TTS) in Horstwalde in Brandenburg since the beginning of the 1990s.

If laboratory tests or model calculations are not sufficient to quantify the risks of hazardous substances, large-scale tests are carried out at the TTS on a one-to-one scale. BAM has set up various test facilities for this purpose.
