Accreditation documents and guidance

Document Date:


Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) only accepts DNA test results from laboratories accredited by SCC as proof of relationship for immigration and citizenship purposes. These analyses establish genetic parent-child connections and relationships between siblings, supporting immigration applications and citizenship by descent. 

Our accreditation ensures testing laboratories provide reliable, third-party verified results, enhancing their credibility and industry reputation. Accreditation is widely recognized as a reliable indicator of technical competence, prompting industries to routinely seek accreditation for their DNA relationship testing laboratory service providers.

You can schedule an appointment with the SCC-accredited laboratory of your choice.
