DETS is a private limited company set up in 1999 and is part of the Suez Group since April 2016. Steady expansion has allowed the company to gain a larger market share, and to increase the scope of analyses offered in order to service a wide variety of industry requirements.

These areas include:

  • Environmental testing of soils, waters, gases and waste
  • Geotechnical and building materials
  • Asbestos
  • Agricultural
  • Fuel and biomass
  • On-site services

Over 100 staff are now employed in our laboratories, and many are well respected within the industry, actively serving on committees and groups such as EIC, AGS, MCERTS, Landfill Regulation, and the Standing Committee of Analysts (see the Management Team section for further details).

DETS are accredited to ISO 17025 and MCERTS for an extensive range of analyses, and are also accredited for sampling.  Samples can be accepted from outside the UK, as a DEFRA import licence is also available.
