ISTA Certification (International Seed Testing Association)

SGS’s ISTA certification (International Seed Testing Association) service eases the process of exporting seeds worldwide by ensuring that your seed shipments are not delayed at customs.

Internationally recognized as setting the standard for seed quality, ISTA imposes strict criteria on organizations providing certificates – demands that we more than satisfy. We ensure that your seed shipments are tested in accordance with the ISTA rules and certified with the appropriate legal requirements. ISTA Orange and ISTA Blue certificates are available.

Our international network makes us the ideal partner for seed exporting and importing, since we can provide sampling worldwide. We have ISTA-authorized samplers globally, allowing us to draw samples for testing wherever your seed cargo happens to be.

For more information on how our ISTA certification service can help minimize your seed exporting risks, contact SGS now.
