The tasks of the reference laboratory include the support to the authorities as well as to the research and surveillance laboratories and institutes. The aim is to ensure reliable and comparable environmental information that is fit for purpose.

Syke provides external quality control and training for chemical and biological testing and sampling activities and takes part in the national and international method standardization. The expertise of the reference laboratory is exploited also in the development of new analytical methods, in legislative preparation and in international projects.
