The international accreditation used to standardize operations of cannabis testing laboratories is ISO/IEC 17025:2017. ISO/IEC 17025 defines the general, structural, resource, process, and management system requirements for the competence of cannabis testing laboratories across the globe. This accreditation adds reliability and credibility to cannabis testing laboratories and ensures that their test results are accurate, valid, reproducible, and legally defensible.
A cannabis testing laboratory must have a foolproof management system, ensure proper equipment handling, calibration, and maintenance, conduct personnel training periodically, and follow record-keeping best practices to ace their preparation for ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation. It is not easy to have all the requirements in place. An informatics tool, such as a Cannabis LIMS, can help laboratories meet the various requirements of ISO 17025 seamlessly and breeze through the accreditation process.
