SCC certification is important for all companies that want to work as contractors, for example in the natural gas or petrochemical industry.

The certification complements our high level of expertise in the field of natural gas analysis and odorization control and creates new fields of activity.
In today's world, analytical data plays a crucial role in the evaluation of products and services. However, a prerequisite for powerful data analysis and comparison is that the methods used to determine the data are precisely described and comparable.

To support this important process of standard definition and development, we have become a member of the German Institute for Standardization (DIN).
