Technical equipment of this testing laboratory is unique in the Czech Republic. There is no other entity capable of offering similar services. Thanks to this, the Military Technical Institute is the only entity in the Czech Republic authorized to perform certification of breathing apparatus for divers, dry and wet suits for divers and life jackets.

Testing laboratory owns authorization for assembly, repairs, revisions and tests of technical devices, registration number 459-PZ-R, Z, O, M-sk.B-a / 21.

    1. Testing Laboratory

Performs tests to assess the conformity of the following personal protective equipment

  • open circuit diving breathing apparatus
