Who we are - what we do

The FFCh is the Division of freelance chemists and owner of independent independent laboratories. In contrast to many other structures of the GDCh, the FFCh is a professionally mixed group. You can find out more about the companies, the orientation and specialization of the individual members in the members area. Our connecting elements are entrepreneurial independence and the high standards that we set for the quality of our services. These are e.g. B .:


  • Laboratory services: sampling, analysis, evaluation, advice and everything related to the field of analysis
  • Expert opinion: by publicly appointed and sworn experts, commercial chemists, security experts, etc.
  • Consulting: From the development of new products and technologies to security and the optimization of operational processes
  • Other services: research, documentation, production, training and much more

The Division pursues the goals of scientific exchange and further education. For this purpose, advanced training events and members' meetings are held on a regular basis. We also encourage chemists to set up their own businesses through information and support. As members, we find professional and personal support in the group, cooperate on projects and benefit from mutual exchange.


The Board consists of the chairman and up to five assessors. more
