ChemCentre is a state statutory authority that reports to the Minister for Science. It provides high quality chemical and forensic science services and advice to government and private industries.
With its origins in two government offices — the Government Assayer and the Government Analyst — established in 1895, the organisation became a statutory authority in 2007, with the passing of the Chemistry Centre (WA) Act 2007.
In 2009 the ChemCentre moved to custom-built premises in Bentley, neighbouring Curtin University and the CSIRO.
