  • ISO Testing: ISO/IEC 17025:2005 specifies the general requirements for the competence to carry out tests and/or calibrations, including sampling. It covers testing and calibration performed using standard methods, non-standard methods, and laboratory-developed methods.
  • TAPPI Testing Guidelines: TAPPI is the technical arm of the American Paper & Pulp Association and have developed microbiological guidelines for food-grade paperboard. They are a not for profit, volunteer-led association that is built around a community comprised of thousands of member engineers, managers, scientists, academics, suppliers and others from around the world.
