In the National Laboratory of Health, Environment and Food, we perform the microbiological diagnostics activities for the needs of health care service providers, perform hygienic and environmental health activities, and also deal with comprehensive environment problems.  Our work is carried out on- field and in laboratories on locations in Celje, Ljubljana, Koper, Kranj, Maribor, Murska Sobota, Nova Gorica, Novo mesto, Ravne na Koroskem and Hrastnik.Practically across whole Slovenia we perform activities in the following fields:

Hygiene and environmental health

Professional control of public and individual water supply systems, determination of microbiologic and chemical pollutants in drinking water and preparation of assessments of the situation and recommendations for action, provision of support for introduction and verification of the HACCP plan and expert support to responsible persons in the process of internal control in the area of food production, processing, and trade, execution of work training for food handling staff, provision of health control of basin and surface bathing waters and many other services in the health and environment area.

We execute our activities on a highly professional level, supported with modern technology in microbiological and sanitary-chemical laboratories and our scientific-research activities.All this enables us to execute even th
e most demanding tasks.

From 2003 onwards we have implemented the quality management system according to ISO 9001:2008. The quality of measurements and procedures on-field and in the laboratory is ensured with methods, accredited according to the standard SIST EN ISO/IEC 17025 at the Slovenian Accreditation Institute (Certificate Nr. LP-014). The inspection body, operating in the frame of the Centre for Environment and Health is accredited according to the standard SIST EN ISO/IEC 17020 (Certificate Nr. K-115).

Our vision is continuous enhancement of our competent work performance, good business success and the establishment of the Centre for Environment and Health in the broader European environment.We are on our way to the leading role in the field of food and environment in the country.
