International Association of Athletic Federations (IAAF)
During 1988, the IAAF made a decision to follow the lead of the FIH and, with the assistance of leading test laboratories around the world, agree a Performance Specification for athletics track surfacing. We were very active in the meetings and discussions that took place over the next two years, to finalise this Specification, which was published by the IAAF in 1990. In a similar way to the FIH, the IAAF has established a network of formally accredited test laboratories, seven in total, around the world. CST is the sole UK laboratory to be so accredited.
