Abstract: In some states, cannabis testing facilities must undergo a third-party audit as a condition for obtaining their license. This may involve obtaining an ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation, which requires an evaluation from a qualified auditor. Alternatively, some laboratories may undergo a voluntary audit in certain regions to showcase their competency.
ISO/IEC 17025 is a widely acknowledged global benchmark for the expertise of testing and calibration laboratories. It establishes guidelines for laboratories to showcase their technical proficiency and ability to produce precise and trustworthy results.
