As of 2019, ISTA 2A is no longer a recognized package performance testing standard by either the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) or the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Though many medical device companies have historically relied on ISTA 2A for their package performance testing needs, submissions in 2020 will no longer accept ISTA 2A as a viable package performance testing standard.

More modern testing standards developed by both International Safe Transit Association (ISTA) and ASTM International (ASTM) allow manufacturers to customize some testing criteria, such as levels, sequences, and orientations, to better evaluate specific, real-world conditions of their packaging and distribution environments.
