Services on behalf of third parties are provided in particular for companies in the textile sector, providing support for analytical tests aimed at characterising materials at all stages of processing: fibres, yarns, fabrics, finished garments.

The results obtained and certified according to national and international standards in force are used to control internal company processing, the purchase and sale of materials and exports.

These services are also available to Public Administrations for textile product inspections, as part of safety and labelling surveillance activities, or to check technical specifications for textile supplies.

Technical advice is also provided on issues proposed by the companies or on the development of analytical tests.

All tests are carried out in the Institute’s Biella laboratories, which are INTERWOOLLABS (International Association of Wool Textile Laboratories) certified and recognised by CCMI (Cashmere & Camel Hair Manufacturers Institute).
