Only ISTA accredited laboratories can issue the ISTA Orange International Certificates (OIC) or Blue International Certificates (BIC). The ISTA laboratory accreditation standard provides a mechanism to accredit and audit seed testing laboratories. The ISTA Proficiency Test program is mandatory for ISTA accredited laboratories and provides an independent measure of a laboratories ability to achieve uniform and consistent results. Designed to cover the scope of accreditation for test methods and species the 138 accredited labs around the world participate. Member but non-accredited laboratories can participate free as volunteers to gain experience and measure their performance relative to other accredited labs.
