The Chemical Safety Engineering department concerns itself with explosive, flammable or otherwise dangerously reactive substances, systems and products – especially in relation to national, European and international regulations of hazardous substances, hazardous goods and explosives legislation and of product safety and pollution control legislation.

We have a quality management system and a GLP certification. Certain divisions are accredited or are Notified Bodies in their respective disciplines within the scope of European directives (explosion protection, explosives, pressure equipment).
