    Abstract

    AOAC approvals benefit the cannabis industry by providing you third party independent validation to authenticate package insert claims and the test kit performance providing confidence and brand protection; methods may have enhanced performance to provide you confidence and brand protection while impacting product safety, integrity and public health.  AOAC is a leader in analytical excellence contributing to the advancement of product safety, product integrity, and public health.  AOAC has a long history of leveraging the power of many making to strengthen impact to fit for purpose methods through the development of standards methods.  Through Cannabis Analytical Science Program (CASP), AOAC influences cannabis science and cannabis safety impacting cannabis science and validation to bring reliable analytical test methods and method validations to ensure safety, science, and protect the industry, consumers, and products.  The validation process ensures five main elements are confirmed: matrix study, inclusivity, exclusivity, stability,  and robustness in both internal studies and independent studies.  Validation methods are publicly accessible. An AOAC method brings you and the industry third party independent validation to authenticate package insert claims, test kit performance to confirm scientific robustness and rigor to provide you confidence, consumer health and safety, and brand protection; methods may have enhanced performance.  AOAC methods demonstrate robust and reliable science and expand the cannabis industry.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Who is AOAC and how do they ensure and impact cannabis science and safety

    2. The value of AOAC certification for the cannabis industry and what this means for you, the industry, and the impact on sate required validations
