INTER-LABORATORY COMPARISON AND PROFICIENCY TEST FOR CANNABIS TESTING LABS
The Emerald Test™ is an Inter-Laboratory Comparison and Proficiency Test (ILC/PT) program for cannabis testing facilities. It brings to the cannabis industry a well-established standard for testing found in the environmental, food, pharmaceutical, water, and petrochemical testing industries. Through the participation of labs around the world, the ILC/PT helps establish an industry benchmark for cannabis testing. State regulatory agencies use proficiency testing (PT) programs for laboratory licensure and compliance to promote accurate testing for cannabis quality and safety. Accreditation bodies, including ANAB, A2LA and PJLA recognize well organized ILC/PT programs that follow ISO/IEC 17043 to address the requirement to participate in external proficiency testing.
