About us

In 2013, on the basis of amendments to the Health Services Act – ZZDej-J (Official Gazette of the Republic of Slovenia, No. 14/13), the Government of the Republic of Slovenia adopted a Decision on the Establishment of the National Institute of Public Health (NIJZ), and the Decision on the Establishment of the National Laboratory for Health, Environment and Food (NLZOH), which performs the tasks in the field of health, environment and food defined by special regulations, and unites all laboratories and related professional activities of the former ZZV and IVZ. On the basis of the Decision on the Establishment of NLZOH of 25 July 2013, the National Laboratory of Health, Environment and Food started operating on 1 January 2014.
