  • AATCC sends samples, instructions, and data sheets to participating labs once or twice per year.
  • Labs have approximately one month to complete testing and submit results online. (Labs may choose not to submit results for all methods in the program, but the fee is not pro-rated.)
  • AATCC compiles results and distributes the report to participating labs with a confidential lab code.
  • AATCC issues digital Certificates of Participation at the end of the calendar year.
