The Emerald Test

The 2021 schedule is here!
Fall enrollment begins on August 11.

Raising the bar for quality assurance in the cannabis and hemp industry.

The Emerald Test™

The Emerald Test™ is an inter-laboratory comparison proficiency test (ILC/PT) program for cannabis and hemp testing facilities. It brings to these industries a well-established protocol for testing found in the environmental, food, pharmaceutical, water, and petrochemical industries. Through the participation of labs around the world, the Emerald Test™ helps establish the industry standard for cannabis and hemp testing.

Governmental agencies use proficiency testing programs for laboratory licensure and compliance to promote accurate testing for quality and safety.  Accreditation bodies, including ANAB, A2LA, IAS and PJLA, recognize well organized ILC/PT programs that utilize ISO/IEC 17043 accredited providers to address the requirement to participate in external proficiency testing.

The Emerald Test™ is offered twice annually in the spring and fall (though individual PT’s are always available!).
