ISTA Accreditation verifies whether a laboratory is technically competent to carry out seed testing procedures in accordance with the ISTA International Rules for Seed Testing. Accredited laboratories must run a quality assurance system, fulfilling the requirements of the ISTA Accreditation Standard. Accreditation can be granted for:
  • entities performing sampling only
  • laboratories performing testing only
  • laboratories performing sampling and testing.
Laboratories accredited by ISTA are authorised to issue ISTA Certificates. These certificates create a common language for seed vendors and buyers, benefiting international expansion in sales. The entities accredited for sampling only can complete the ISTA Seed Sampling Templates.
