The central services primarily carry out tasks for the Institute of Geological Sciences. Thereby, all larger orders are gathered via forms and, where necessary, in direct consultation with the "customers".

As far as possible, the central services can also accept orders from outside the Institute. This requires in any case a written order in advance. This must be sent to the Secretary's Office of the Institute.
