Materials Fire Properties Testing Laboratory belongs to the organizational structure of the Faculty of Maritime Technology and Transport of the West Pomeranian University of Technology, Szczecin. Due to demand  for research on the combustibility of materials used in civil engineering, shipbuilding and railways, in 1999 on the initiative of Ph.D. Zygmunt Sychta a Materials Fire Properties Testing Laboratory has been established. Ph.D. Zygmunt Sychta, the first head of the Laboratory, along with a team of co-workers: Krystyna Olender, Helena Iwaszczyńska and Krzysztof Sychta, implemented a quality management system and obtained accreditation in 2000 by the Polish Center for Testing and Certification - currently the Polish Center for Accreditation.  After passing Ph. D. Zygmunt Sychta for retirement in 2011, the head of the Laboratory was Ph.D.  Krzysztof Sychta. Since September 2013, the head of the Laboratory is Ph.D. Renata Dobrzyńska.
Since 1974, the  Materials Fire Properties Testing Laboratory has a Approval Certificate Polish Register of Shipping, and since 2000, accredited by the Polish Centre for Accreditation (AB 304).
