Established by the French Government in 1990 as the National competence centre for Industrial Safety and Environmental Protection, Ineris (Institut national de l'environnement industriel et des risques) has developed expertise in the areas of chronic and hazardous risks.

Assess, prevent, mitigate and certify

Our research activities supporting public policy and our services supporting businesses contribute to the evaluation and prevention of the risks that economic activities induce for the environment, health and safety of people and goods.

In the areas of accidental risks, chronic risks, and ground and underground risks.

The Institute accompanies innovation by taking into account upstream the risks generated by new products, new technologies or processes.

An expert on risks, which comes from acknowledged recognized know-how in the fields of mines, energy and chemistry

Ineris, a public establishment of an industrial and commercial nature under the tutelage of the Ministry of the Environment, was created in 1990. The result of a restructuration of the Centre of Studies and Research of Collieries of France (Cerchar) and the Institute of Applied Chemical Research (Ircha), the Institute capitalises upon nearly 70 years of expertise and know-how.
