It is vital to your business that the substances you are producing and using comply with the regulations your government has established to protect human health and the environment and to ensure the safe use of substances throughout their lifecycle.


ISI has been testing chemicals, polymers, UVCB, mixtures and products to comply with regulatory agencies since it opened in 1991. The bulk of our regulatory testing is within the OECD suite of tests, with similar tests found under other umbrella regulatory bodies such as the USEPA and REACH. We have successfully submitted results to regulatory bodies within Canada, the U.S.A., the European Union, Australia, China and Japan.


We also support Toxicity Testing (both aquatic and mammalian) and Biodegradation Studies by performing the Chemical Confirmation of the starting and subsequent Test Item concentrations.


Please see our Regulatory Tests List below for examples of the standard tests we conduct.  If you do not see the test you are interested in please feel free to contact us. If you’re unsure of what test you may need, we will work with you to remedy that as well.




Regulatory Tests List

The bulk of our regulatory testing is within the OECD suite of tests. The OECD tests and methods are used worldwide for chemical registration and similar tests are found under other umbrella regulatory bodies such as the USEPA and REACH. If you do not find the test you’re looking for listed here, please contact us to see what we can do to help you find what you need.
