Presentation Title: Seal of Testing Assurance Program Updates

Presentation Description: The USCC Seal of Testing Assurance Program has been hard at work over the last year. The STA Gateway database has seen updates to its features, functionality, user experience, and is now set to leverage program data in order to propel the STA program to new heights. The STA Advisory Committee has developed guidance in clarifying the differences between the STA program and the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI). The USCC Market Development Committee is set to announce an updated STA logo and branding guidelines for STA participants that will go into effect in 2025. Finally, the USCC has entered a working partnership with the American Society of Landscape Architects, providing our industry with an opportunity for market development through education and awareness of the Seal of Testing Assurance Program and its nation-wide standards.
