AOAC INTERNATIONAL is launching an Expert Review Panel (ERP) for Glyphosate Methods to review submitted candidate methods for adoption and publication in the Official Methods of AnalysisSM of AOAC INTERNATIONAL. AOAC is actively recruiting international volunteers with experience and expertise to serve on this ERP. Membership on this ERP is an opportunity to participate and lend your expertise and experience to the AOAC Official MethodsSM Program in evaluating methods for the characterization and quantitation of glyphosate and its metabolites. If you are a subject matter expert and are interested in volunteering on this AOAC ERP, please complete the application below.

Current Scope of the AOAC ERP for Glyphosate Methods

AOAC will issue a Call for Methods for the determination of glyphosate, its metabolites (N-acetylglyphosate, aminomethylphosphonic acid [AMPA] and N-acetyl-aminomethylphosphonic acid [N-acetyl AMPA]), and/or trimesium in multiple food products in accordance with AOAC Standard Method Performance Requirements (SMPRs®) approved on June 18, 2021. The ERP will review the method(s) that demonstrate meeting the AOAC SMPR through sufficient validation data collection.

Eligibility and How to Apply

All applications will be screened and submitted to the AOAC Official Methods Board, who will vet the candidates and form the ERP roster. Ideal candidates for ERP Membership must:

  1. Submit an application including brief statement of experience and a two (2) page CV or resume
  2. Have experience and/or expertise in at least one of the following, but not limited to:
    • Analysis of glyphosate in food or feed
    • Analytical chemistry methodology for analysis of foods, pet foods, and chemical products
    • Analytical method development for glyphosate and its metabolites
