The Hungarian Testing Board (HTB or HSTQB - Hungarian Software Testing and Qualifications Board) was founded in 2007 as a non-profit organization, association of specialists dedicated to good practices in software testing as well as information systems. In addition to testing in itself, the HTB is an official panel for all testing related disciplines/activities in Hungary.

The Board consists of testing experts from a wide range of organizations: the IT industry, consultancies, training providers and other professional and scientific/academic communities who volunteer their time to the achievement of organization's goals. The HTB is a member Board of the ISTQB (International Software Testing and Qualification Board) and as such it is the single legal representative of ISTQB in Hungary. Also members of the HTB are the only ones who can represent HTB internationally as a national board for Hungary within the ISTQB.
