CloudLIMS, a SOC 2 compliant and ISO 9001:2015 certified informatics company, was pleased to host a complimentary webinar in association with the American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA).
This informative webinar was attended by participants across the globe, including laboratory managers, directors, quality managers, and technicians of cannabis testing labs. The attendees asked interesting questions about the most common mistakes new testing labs make, the timeline from estimation to accreditation, how measurement uncertainty fits into the accreditation process, and something that sparked a lot of interest was how a cloud-based LIMS is more cost-effective compared to an on-premises one.
This webinar established the three main things a cannabis testing lab must focus on when prepping for ISO 17025 accreditation. They are an effective management system, proper equipment handling, calibration, and maintenance, and personnel training. The speakers highlighted that these three requirements are very important and shared some tips to comply with them. A Cannabis LIMS can greatly help laboratories to meet the various requirements of ISO 17025 smoothly and quickly pass regulatory audits.
The key points covered in the webinar include:
- What is accreditation to the requirements of ISO/IEC 17025 and why it’s important
- Management systems: the key to data defensibility
- The equipment requirements you will need to meet to be successful
- Why ensuring the competence of your staff is crucial
- How a cannabis LIMS can help you keep up with the requirements of ISO/IEC 17025
The webinar is now available on-demand. If you missed the chance to attend the live webinar, you can watch the recording.
