Hemp and cannabis testing laboratories are evolving swiftly. New and diverse analytical methodologies are continuously being developed to address the needs of the rapidly growing cannabis and hemp industry, and the changing regulatory landscape surrounding these materials. Whether the focus is on ensuring products are free of dangerous pesticides, heavy metals, or microbials, or on characterizing potency and terpene content of hemp and cannabis-related products, it is more imperative than ever for labs to prove to themselves, their customers, state and federal regulators, and the public that the results they deliver are defensible and accurate. This is why selecting the appropriate Proficiency Testing Program is extremely important, and to address this need, AOAC INTERNATIONAL (AOAC) and Signature Science, LLC (SigSci) have developed the AOAC Cannabis and Hemp Proficiency Testing (PT) Programs. These programs offer uniquely representative PT samples in both hemp and cannabis matrices and are the only accredited PT programs with these analytes capable of shipping >0.3% delta-9 THC cannabis across state lines.

Join us to learn more on the significances of proficiency testing, different types of PT programs and their approaches to scoring and evaluations, and risks associated with using matrices that may not be fit for purpose. Learn how proficiency testing can be made easier and used as a tool for continuous improvement, and what sets the hashtagAOAC programs apart.
