Regulators. Testing Labs. Service Providers. Operators. The Right People in One Place.

With increasing legalization of both recreational and medicinal marijuana, the cannabis testing industry is ripe for exponential growth. Cannabis lab testing requirements are drawing a lot of attention and are under increased scrutiny from state regulators, testing labs, cultivators, producers, retailers and patients. Uniform national testing and operational standards and protocols need to be developed and implemented to ensure products’ consistency for safety and efficacy.

Lack of unity across states and internationally is creating cannabis lab testing confusion. It’s hard for operators to stay on top of the new and changing rules and methodologies. Thresholds differ from state to state; different methods are generating various results; local jurisdictions are creating procedures that many operators must understand. There are many more implementation issues and challenges that cannabis entrepreneurs need to overcome to be able to stay compliant in this highly competitive business.

Creating uniform state standards and federal cannabis regulation is crucial. The 2nd Annual Cannabis Compliance Summit, July 19 – 21, 2017 in Los Angeles, is the premier event for decision makers that brings the policy makers in the same room with the testing labs, equipment and technology providers, operators and industry experts to create uniform cannabis industry frameworks.

Users of cannabis products depend on testing to ensure that the products are safe for use/consumption and that the labeled potency can be trusted. Proper testing is imperative to this assurance, and confidence in the laboratories that perform this testing may be achieved through accreditation to the ISO/IEC 17025 Standard.

A2LA offers two accreditation tracks for cannabis testing laboratories. Both offer independent, third-party accreditation assessments crafted to meet both the Medical Marijuana and Recreational Adult Use markets. The first track consists of using ISO/IEC 17025:2005 as the primary framework, along with any additional, state-specific requirements. A2LA also offers an optional second tract, which adds to the first accreditation track the additional accreditation requirements derived from Americans for Safe Access (ASA) Patient Focused Certification (PFC) Program for testing laboratories. In this way, A2LA can provide assurance that all state regulatory as well as industry-specific requirements are being met by the laboratory.
