The EUROLAB directory and handbook "Testing in Europe", published in one volume, is an information source on European private and public laboratories and organizations operating in the 17 countries of the European Union (EU) and the European Free Trade Association (EFTA), active in the fields of testing, analysis, product certification and technical conformity assessment. The directory section of the publication is structured in chapters, one for each country, and includes information on each national EUROLAB branch, its membership, and detailed information on the laboratories. This section also provides a complete description of activities using three key indexes: type of activity, techniques of testing and fields and products tested. The handbook section focuses on the European testing environment through a presentation of the major European and international organizations and institutions involved in testing and standardization. It also provides the addresses in Europe for laboratories, as well as information on the European Commission with presentation of the New Approach Directives and EC supported RTD.
