FAQ

I have a product that comes in several different colors, do I need to test each one for ISTA Certification?

Answers

No. A color difference is considered "cosmetic" and cosmetic differences in the product do not require individual testing of each unit.


If the differences in your products do not affect the performance of the packaging (such as color, small internal components, decorative accessories, etc) then testing one representative sample is acceptable.


If the sample tested has different model numbers based on cosmetic differences, then those should be clearly listed on the test report form, including what the difference is to the sample tested.
