    changes to systems

    You will know from previous communications that the way in which imports are notified across the EU is changing. The notification system TRACES Classic is being phased out and replaced by TRACES New Technology. Under the Official Controls Regulations, CVED certificates are being replaced by CHEDs.

    The EU has communicated their intent to shut down the CVED-P module of TRACES Classic on 15 September 2020.

Members of the International Serum industry Association are collectors, processors and users of animal serum and animal derived products. These products are used extensively in the growth of cells in culture for research and in the production of diagnostic kits, vaccines and biotherapeutic molecules.

The ISIA Mission


ISIA shall establish, promote and assure compliance with uncompromised standards of excellence and ethics in the business practices of the global animal serum and animal derived products supply industry.

Our primary focus will continue to be on safety and safe use of serum and animal derived products through proper origin traceability, and truth in labeling, and appropriate standardization and oversight.


We will work to educate stakeholders on the scientific foundation of the safe use of serum and animal derived products.
