The next AOAC Analytical Methods Week will take place December 13 – 17, 2021. AOAC Expert Review Panels (ERPs) will meet during this week to review methods and method validation plans submitted by the AOAC method submission deadline.

Method Submission Deadline: COB Friday, October 15, 2021

The AOAC Official MethodsSM Program organizes and facilitates the review of methods by appointed ERPs across AOAC’s integrated science programs. Methods submitted through an active Call for Methods have Standard Method Performance Requirements® (SMPRs®) associated with them. The applicable SMPRs are included in the Call for Methods. All other methods may still be submitted to AOAC. Application fees may apply for certain submissions. Contact Deborah McKenzie at [email protected] if you have any questions about application fees.
