There are innumerable labs that offer flash point determination.  One large operation with facilities in many locations is Columbia Analytical Services. If you tell them specifically which test you need, they can do it, but they are more oriented toward environmental testing and do not understand which test is needed for DOT transportation compliance testing.  If that is what you need, you'll have to quote the appropriate EPA Procedure number  for closed cup testing to be sure you get the correct procedure.

I am looking for a place that can to flash point testing on a monomer of ours and am having trouble finding someone who will do the testing for us.  Do any of you have any suggestions on where I can go to get this test performed?

Thanks for your help,
