Small enough to care and big enough to deliver



If you did not notify HSE and wish to continue to import EU REACH registered substances into Great Britain at or above one tonne per year, you can still submit a notification, if eligible to do so. You should do this as soon as possible. Defra has committed to exploring alternative arrangements for transitional registrations including extending deadlines to provide full registration data.

The deadline for applying for product authorization for the active substances ADBAC/BKC (C12-C16) and DDAC in biocidal products of PT 3 and 4 is 01 November 2022. Good to know that LAUS has already experience with the analytical determination of quaternary ammonium compounds like DDAC.

Im Zeichen der Corona-Krise sind besonders Hallensportarten von den Restriktionen betroffen. So sinnvoll hohe Sicherheitsmaßnahmen auch sind, so aufwändig ist es für Vereine, Wettkämpfe zu organisieren. Anlass für LAUS, auszuhelfen und zu unterstützen! Dietmar Kuhn von LAUS war es wichtig zu zeigen, dass zurzeit mit hohen Auflagen Sport in Rheinland-Pfalz möglich ist. – Mit Hilfe von LAUS konnten sich am 04./05.12.2021 in Mainz nicht nur Rheinland-Pfälzer, sondern Fechter aus fast dem gesamten Bundesgebiet zwischen Lütjensee und München zum Winter-Cup in Mainz versammeln. Der Winter-Cup in Mainz ist Teil einer Turnierserie, die von den Leistungszentren Nürnberg, Eislingen, Mainz und Künzelsau organisiert wird. Säbler*Innen in den Klassen U9 bis U17 konnten sich in ihren Altersklassen messen und so die Besten ausmachen. Zeigten sich die Gäste aus den anderen Bundesländern anfänglich verwundert, ob der klaren 2G+ Regeln, so überwog am Ende die Freude, dass Hallensport trotz Corona möglich ist. Angesichts der großen Begeisterung und dem allgemein hohen Niveau waren die Ergebnisse schon nahezu nebensächlich. Dennoch möchte LAUS den Rheinland-Pfälzischen Siegern aus Kaiserlautern (Silantyev/Aktive) und Mainz (Barth/U9, Larres/U17, Graudins/U17+Aktive) herzlichst gratulieren.


We value training measures and keep ourselves up to date!

The LAUS team values workshops and seminars to stay up to date in the regulatory areas connected with the testing we offer. This helps us to better understand our customer and to improve our service.

Martin Schaaf participated in two events in the course of this months:

  • BAUA EMKG – Onlineworkshop für Anwender
  • Fresenius Akademie: 12. Anwenderforum – Chemikalienrecht Aktuell – REACH und CLP im Fokus

If you need testing in connection with

  • CLP
  • declaration and classification of dangerous goods
  • water hazardous risk classes
  • endocrine disruptors
  • nanomaterials

Did you know that there are two direct techniques of characterizing nanoparticles <100 nm?

You need a multitude of analytical tools to describe a nanomaterial sufficiently:

FTIR with ATR / XRF or ICP-MS / XRD incl. Rietveld analysis / BET / Zeta Potential / DLS / PSD / EDX…


But transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) are the only direct methods to analyze particles below 100 nm in diameter (in at least one dimension) and to describe primary particles in size and form as well as their agglomeration state appropriately.

Last Call to file a DUIN! All non-GB manufacturer, formulator, or supplier who want to maintain access to the GB market have time until 27 October 2021. If you have neither a GB subsidiary nor an GB partner to assume the obligations as importer, you can appoint LAUS to be your Only Representative (OR) in the UK.

LAUS can support you with the analytical work for agrochemical trials:

  • Method development
  • Method validation acc. SANTE/2020/12830
  • Independent laboratory validation ILV
  • Stability of pesticide residues in stored commodities
  • 5-batch analyses

We can for example supplement your

  • Residues studies
  • Dislodgable foliar residue studies (DFR trials)
  • And more

All work will be carried out using the newest state-of-the-art technologies and according to the principles of Good Laboratory Practice.

In case you need experimental endpoints for the Environmental Risk Assessment of your API in medicinal products either for human use or for veterinary use, we can support you:

  • Physico-chemical properties
  • Fate properties
  • Aquatic toxicity
  • Functioning of STP (sewage treatment plant)
  • Sediment toxicity

As described in EMEA/CHMP/SWP/4447/00 Rev. 1, respectively CVMP/ERA/418282/2005-Ref.1




LAUS will be participating in the Online Edition of the Biocide Congress in Lyon, Wed., Oct 6 to Thur., Oct. 7 2021.
Come and visit our virtual booth or contact us directly!


Have you received an ECHA draft decision based on Article 41 of REGULATION (EC) No 1907/2006? Are you required to submit additional information to bring your registration into compliance?

Let us support you! We are experienced in delivering the experimental endpoints in accordance with all requirements specified by the Agency. Whether you need a chronic study like OECD 211 (Daphnia reprotox) or you have a tricky substance, our experts will be there to find a solution.


The transition period of 300 days after Brexit will end soon. All non-GB manufacturer, formulator, or supplier who want to maintain access to the GB market have time until 28 October 2021.

If you have neither a GB subsidiary nor an GB partner to assume the obligations as importer, you can appoint LAUS to be your Only Representative (OR) in the UK.

Terrestrial ecotoxicity studies of substances are of great importance because effects on target as well as on non-target organisms in the environmental compartment `soil` can be analysed and evaluated.


In the field of terrestrial toxicity LAUS covers:

  • OECD 207: Earthworm: Acute Toxicity Tests (Eisenia andrei)
  • OECD 222: Earthworm Reproduction Test (Eisenia andrei)
  • OECD 225: Sediment-Water Lumbriculus Toxicity Test Using Spiked Sediment
  • OECD 218: Sediment-Water Chironomid Toxicity Test Using Spiked Sediment
  • OECD 219: Sediment-Water Chironomid Toxicity Test Using Spiked Water
  • OECD 216: Soil Microorganisms: Nitrogen Transformation Test
  • OECD 217: Soil Microorganisms: Carbon Transformation Test

For all non-GB manufacturer, formulator, or supplier who want to maintain access to the GB market after Brexit the transition period to file a a DUIN (downstream user import notification) under Article 127E of the statutory instrument (SI) will end 28 October 2021. After that, companies have 2, 4 or 6 years for the full registrations of their substances to be completed, depending on tonnage band and hazard profile.
