The International Serum Industry Association was formed in June 2006 with a specific focus on the Serum Industry. Since that time the scope of the Association has broadened to include all animal derived products used in the multibillion dollar life science and biomedical sectors.The Association does not currently include food applications or human derived materials within its sphere of influence.

SAFETY AND SAFE USE
Our primary focus will 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 also work to educate stakeholders on the scientific foundation of the safe use of serum and animal derived products.
ISIA continues to implement an extensive Strategic Planning Initiative focused on four key areas.
ISIA is working to harmonize technical standards, testing methods, and import/export for the industry.
ISIA is working to proactively educate those involved with our products about our industry, and our Association.
ISIA is working to interpret regulations, participate in the development of new regulations affecting our industry, and strengthen our position as resource and liason with global regulatory agencies.
ISIA is working to continually improve, promote, and manage the ISIA Traceability Program. Additionally, ISIA is working to strengthen the Traceability Program in the future by researching the applicability of quantitative methods and new technologies to the Serum industry.
ISIA has developed a worldwide network of contacts with regulatory agencies, other associations and interested parties. We continue to proactively develop these resources for our membership.
