Certified reference materials and suitability testing are key tools in ensuring the correctness of analysis results.

The division Inorganic Reference Materials produces Certified Reference Materials (CRMs) for chemical analyses in the field of iron and steel (EURONORM CRMs) and for analyses of non-ferrous metals (and alloys thereof) along with ceramics and glasses. In doing so, we cooperate closely with national and international partners. We also supply Certified Reference Materials for the chemical analysis of soils, woods and recycled materials.

In the field of inorganic environmental analysis, we conduct regular round robin tests to evaluate the competence of testing laboratories. The division's employees also operate on national and international standardisation committees (DIN, CEN and ISO) to enable the standardisation of analysis techniques.
