The Metals Classification Tool (MECLAS) is a unique web-enabled tool that provides updated classification for complex materials in the metals sector. These materials often contain a variety of different metals, compounds, and minerals, and require extensive reference data sets for physico-chemical, toxicity, and ecotoxicity analysis. MECLAS offers a multi-tiered approach, allowing for progressive refinement of classification based on speciation, specific mineral content, and the availability of test data for the specific complex material being analyzed.

MECLAS - the smartest way to fulfil your classification obligations

The MECLAS tool is a collaborative effort between EUROMETAUX and ARCHE Consulting.

To use the tool, a license is required. Users must register at the MECLAS website to obtain a login account, which grants access to the tool and all supporting information.
