IDFB Lab Certification Program

  • Independent third-party labs can participate in the annual lab certification program. This is the process: IDFB will mail samples to be tested and review the test result. If the results don’t exceed a certain threshold, they will be listed as an IDFB certified lab. A lab must pass the program for two years in a row to receive its first certificate and to then be listed as an Associated Member of IDFB.

  • Internal labs of companies that are IDFB members can attend the same program and will receive IDFB recognition but are not listed on the website.
