The latter includes access to information and laboratory services. SCG has established a system, with the following functions: Distribution of soil samples among the laboratories; Execution of quality control on the chemical analytical methods used in laboratories; Maintenance of the information fund (archive). The enterprise, responsible to the performance of the system is Geochemia. The case specifies the functions of Geochemia, information systems and technologies used to support execution of its activities in the time of transition to market economy.
