For Immediate Release


Are You Suffering Subscription Services Overload?


RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., USA, March 29, 2021—AATCC has just made things easier. No joking! Beginning April 1, 2021, the AATCC Textile Ultraviolet Calibration Standard (TUVCS) will be offered as an AATCC QC product. No more subscription required.  AATCC to is excited about the changes to the TUVCS ordering process.


Our customer features are expanded and include:


  • Order on demand, directly from the AATCC website
  • Product ships immediately, no more waiting for bi-monthly subscription release dates
  • Product can ship with other purchases, allowing for order consolidation
  • Easier use of your shipper accounts
  • Comparable pricing to full year subscriptions service
  • Same great customer service
  • Same dependable product support


Some key information to note:

An individual TUVCS standard is still only valid for six months from the date it was released from AATCC. Products past their six-month expiration date are not supported.


Replacement standards will no longer be available. If your standard is lost or damaged, simply place an order for a new standard. You will get full six-month usage out of it as it will have its own expiration date.


No new subscription orders will be accepted after Mar 31, 2021. All new orders will be directed to the new ordering process. Current active subscription plans will be supported. Once the second subscription shipment is sent, renewals will transition to the new ordering process.


AATCC will send courtesy customer reorder reminders to support the change in ordering process.
