The Research and Supervisory Centre of Underground Mining Co. Ltd is a company that has been running its business since 1992, being a state-owned enterprise on the early stage of its existence. It was established on the background of a research and development entity, known as the Central Research Laboratory, that had existed since 1963 and rendered services to the sector of hard coal mining industry.
Although both the Company and its affiliated Centres are seated in Lędziny and in Mysłowice – Brzezinka we run our business within the whole area of Poland and abroad. Nevertheless, the Silesian urban area is the main scope of our interest as nearly all of hard coal mines are located there along with large electric power stations, steelworks and non ferrous plants and other plants related to metallurgical industry.
We have gathered knowledge and experience that are necessary to launch research projects and carry out technical analyses, expert assessments of machinery and equipment, electric power internal wiring and grids, associated natural hazards, in particular methane-related ones that are harmful to work safety and natural environment.
We are a leading expert entity in Poland that deals with engineering issues of mining industry by empowerment from the President of State Mining Authority. We hold the entire spectrum of authorization certificates to carry out every possible expert assessment within the mining sector.
Investigations of working conditions and environmental issues are performed by our research laboratories that have been granted the PCA accreditation certificate that confirms compliance with the standard PN-EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005 as well as the authorization certificate from the Provincial Sanitary Inspector. Technical examinations follow the authorization rights obtained from the Office for Technical Surveillance and Road Technical Supervising.
