“National Laboratory Bul Rose” LTD was established at the beginning of 2010 in Gabrovo Town as a result of the successful realization of cooperative program between Bulgarian National Association for Essential Oils, Perfumery and Cosmetics – BNAEOPC and GTZ ( Deutsche Gesellschaft für Technische Zusammenarbeit) – German company for technical cooperation, which is a state corporation for international development with partners from all over the world. The laboratory is part of a larger project of the sector, namely a project for protection of the Bulgarian rose oil as a protected geographical indication in the EU. The establishment of the "National Laboratory Bul Rose” LTD is a fact and it is a guarantee of high quality of the Bulgarian rose oil and it keeps us as an institution with exceptional competence and high international prestige.

"National Laboratory Bul Rose” LTD performs its activities in two main directions:

1. Scientific-exploring and developing activity, which is directed to solving the following main tasks: 
А. Discovering new, unidentified ingredients of the essential oils, especially the rose one, where the known ingredients are 36, but it is suggested the existence of at least a hundred more identified / unidentified and / or non-qualified; 
B. Supporting the Bulgarian manufacturers and users for successful registration in REACH, the European Regulation for the identification and designation of chemical substances;
C. Scientific-exploring activity in the field of flammability thresholds of the essential oils and methods for their transportation; 
D. Scientific-exploring activity, directed to discovering biocides in cosmetic products; 
E. Scientific-exploring and developing activity in working out new methodologies for identifying the components of different essential oils, for which there is lack of standardized analytic methods – Essential oils from common balm, Roman chamomile, thyme, St. John's wort (Hypericum perforatum), Helichrysum arenarium, Ruta graveolens, Tanacetum, milfoil, etc.
F. Scientific-exploring and developing activity for quantifying the fluorine in toothpastes;
G. Scientific-exploring and developing activity for quantifying the diethylene glycol in toothpastes; 
H. Scientific-exploring and developing activity in working out analyses of heavy metals in cosmetics and essential water;

I. As a result of our innovations, the existed methodologies for analyses of essential oils are improved – rose, lavender, pine and blue juniper oils, and except the existed components, mentioned in internationally acclaimed standards, we also define additional components, typical for these oils;
J. As a result of the demand by clients and of our innovating activity, methodology of industry standards for microbiological analytic packages is improved and adjusted;
