The Relationship Testing Accreditation Program is based on standards developed by experts who serve on AABB’s Relationship Testing Standards Committee. The program provides for the assessment and accreditation of facilities performing relationship testing activities, assuring the public that the highest levels of accuracy and quality are used. AABB-accredited facilities are deemed acceptable by USCIS for immigration case reports.
