Reduce Risk Exposure to Your Brand

Products are continually questioned with regard to their safety, potency, and label claims. Inferior and contaminated products cause the industry many problems. They impede the growth of business, undermine profitability, invite media scrutiny, and increase government regulation. The risk exposure to a company’s brand ultimately costs everyone money.

AOAC’s stakeholder, consensus-based validated methods through the AOAC® Performance-TestedSM and Official MethodsSM Programs are the sound, science-based solution to restoring public trust in a company’s products and controlling risk exposure to a company’s brand and business.

When controversy arose in India over pesticides in soft drinks, AOAC Organizational Affiliate (OA) companies turned to the Association to help opposing sides resolve the complex issues, which included the lack of standard analytical methodology, politics, and international trade. AOAC provided a science-based solution to the problem by bringing representatives from the Indian ministries, together with other major stakeholders, to develop, evaluate, and validate a consensus-based analytical method for the detection of pesticide residues in soft drinks through the AOAC® Official MethodsSM Program.

AOAC is ready to provide a science-based solution for you.

These critical decision-making meetings are conducted with government and industry representatives present and are designed to initiate collaborations between the key stakeholders (suppliers, manufacturers, trade associations, retailers, test kit manufacturers, government, and others) in establishing a plan for analytical solutions in the areas of interest to the OAs.
