What it Means to be ISO Certified

Through a $500,000 grant from the Alberta Livestock and Meat Agency, the RADLab has established North America’s first International Standards Organization (ISO)-certified RFID Test Lab.

ISO certification allows us to test cattle tags that International Committee for Animal Recording (ICAR) receives from manufacturers.  We perform two tests: one that assesses the tag’s formatting and the second that analyzes its performance in a range of magnetic fields.
