ISO 13495:2013 specifies molecular tools for generating molecular profiles of varieties of plant species, enabling varietal identification, i.e. confirmation of identity in relation to one or more references.

ISO 13495:2013 is applicable to various matrices, seeds, leaves, roots, industrial products composed of only one variety. Matrices presented in the form of mixtures of varieties (such as purees, compotes, flours) are excluded from the scope of ISO 13495:2013. It does not deal with genetic purity.
