In present, TZÚ is a leader in branch testing and certification and involved in many other activities within the experimental development.

The accredited testing laboratory is a credit to its accreditation number, which is 1001, and offers several hundreds of tests for nearly all types of textile products. In present, safety represents the most critical issue and covers not only the detection of harmful substances but also flammability and resistance of technical textiles. Besides, high-tech and hygiene are in the limelight of attention; therefore, we got accredited by UCL and have constructed a microbiological laboratory.

Although the Institute, under No. 3003 became only the third certification body in the history of accreditation in our country, it has taken leading position in the certification of textile enterprises. The Institute has certified more enterprises in the branch than all renowned organizations altogether. As far as the certification of industrial laundries is concerned, it has practically no competition. Our advantage consists in the traditional knowledge of the branch of auditors´ qualification (Global Senior Auditors IQNet).

The testing is linked with certification and CE marking, including the production management system certifications. Although the certification body No. 3044 for products was not among the first ones to have been accredited, it has succeeded to obtain for the Institute the authorization AO 219 and notification for EU NB 1021.

The high qualification, experience and authority of its personnel are supported by the fact that TZÚ acts also as a forensic expertise institute.

Nevertheless, the offer of TZÚ services would not be complete without the information on new technical standards ensured by the Centre of Technical Standardization. We are actively involved in the preparation of National and European standards in textiles and furnitures branchs.

The rapid progress in our branch also requires that the knowledge be kept up-to-date; therefore, the Institute offers educational activities based on the outcomes of Leonardo da Vinci international projects in which it takes part. We help to our branch not only through the education of target groups that sell or further process the textile but by early learning of school children. We organize regular training both for quality managers and sale people who are imparted the experience in solving the complaints by forensic experts.

All the aforesaid activities require the latest knowledge that is available in the area of research. So, nobody will be surprised by the Institute´s participation in the research of applications of nanoparticles and nanolayers.

Upon signature of the Code of Ethics of the Czech Accreditation Institute, the TZÚ accredited bodies have undertaken to further develop the quality and professionalism of its services.
