DEADLINE: May 16, 2022
Since 2011, AOAC Expert Review Panels (ERPs) have been used to assess methods against Standard Method Performance Requirements (SMPRs®). In 2021, after a decade of successful adoption of over 100 Official Methods, the Official Methods Board (OMB) undertook a review to integrate and clarify the standards process to ensure continued best practice while recognizing and embracing flexibility to meet each community’s needs as part of the Official MethodsTM Program.
The OMB’s OMA Methods Working Group recently completed its review and revision of AOAC Appendix G: Procedures and Guidelines for the Use of AOAC Voluntary Consensus Standards to Evaluate Characteristics of a Method of Analysis and is now accepting public comments.
The public comment period is open through May 16, 2022. Comments will be compiled and reviewed and the document may be revised if necessary, based on comments received.
Comments must be submitted using the form provided. Marked up documents will not be accepted.
All comments are due by May 16, 2022. The AOAC team will address all questions and reserves the right to not accept comments received after this deadline.
