SRM Licensed Distributors


In order to facilitate the world-wide distribution of its Standard Reference Materials (SRMs), the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has established a licensed distributor program. The non-exclusive limited distribution license enables a distributor to purchase SRMs from NIST and resell them into the distributor's market using NIST's registered marks Standard Reference Material® and SRM®.  NIST only enters into non-exclusive limited distribution agreements with producers of Certified Reference Materials (CRM) that are accredited and certified by a third-party to ISO 17034 for all SRM product categories similar to the NIST catalog, excluding NIST Radioactive SRMs. In addition, CRM producers must be ISO 9001 certified, having official written procedures and training documentation in the areas of customer service, product design, manufacturing, analysis, change management, certification, packaging, storage, shipping, and purchasing.

NIST is pleased to announce that the NIST SRM Program now has these licensed distributors:
