History of the Research Laboratory of IEE PAS

In 2004, the director of the Institute, Prof. Dr hab. Czesława Rosik-Dulewska, set up a team whose task was to establish a laboratory where accredited tests would be carried out for the needs of entrepreneurs. On 18 January 2007, by Order of the Institute Director No. 2/2007 on the appointment of an accreditation team to implement the standard PN-EN ISO /IEC 17025:2005 at the Institute and to define the scope of its tasks and competences, the IPIŚ PAN Research Laboratory was formally established. It consisted of three laboratories: P1 Pollutant Emission Laboratory, P2 Trace Analysis Laboratory, P3 Environmental Analysis Laboratory. The first head of the laboratory was Prof. Dr. hab. Raymond Michalski. In 2007, the laboratory submitted an application to the Polish Centre for Accreditation to confirm its competence to perform the tests. On October 10, 2008, the laboratory was accredited by the Polish Center for Accreditation No. AB 950. Since September 1, 2008, the head of the laboratory is Dr. Eng. Jerzy Szdzuj. In the following years, the laboratory gradually expanded the scope of its research activities. It was equipped with modern research equipment, such as ICP MS spectrometer, EDXRF spectrometer, ion and gas chromatographs.

In 2016, the structure of the laboratory was changed and laboratories P2 and P3 were merged into one laboratory P2 for environmental samples.
