About us

Croatian Mine Action Centre – Centre for Testing, Development and Training (HCR-CTRO) is Limited Liability Company established as the first institution performing testing, research, development and education in the field of mine action in the Republic of Croatia.

HCR-CTRO is the only company in the Republic of Croatia accredited by the Croatian Accreditation Agency to conduct certification of demining machines, metal detectors, mine detection dogs and personal protective equipment.

The main aim is to conduct systematic trials and field tests and evaluation of mine detection technologies and techniques, to engage in R&D projects and to implement training courses in the field of mine action. Also, the main purpose of establishing the Centre was upgrading and improving mine action activities in Croatia and assisting other mine contaminated countries in organizing and managing demining activities.

HCR-CTRO team was very friendly and they welcomed us very warmly. We received satisfactory answers from very experienced instructors to all questions in our minds in an interactive venue!
