ACCL supports scientific acumen and legal responsibility, therefore, our members follow strict guidelines:
ACCL members agree not to ship samples except for those in jurisdictions where Federal statues allow such activities to legally take place.
Member Labs does not report sample test values without actually performing a sample analysis - no “dry-labbing” is performed.
Member Labs have on-staff at least one individual that has at least one peer-reviewed publication in a well-accepted scientific publication, or patent, or equivalent that demonstrates an adequate level of scientific acumen, which is hereby attached for review.
Member Labs agree to submit to random “ring-testing” or similar experiments in order to probe the integrity of sample results and general laboratory operations ACCL Membership Statement.
and professional features including:
Members of the ACCL agree to always conduct themselves in a professional manner that continually seeks to raise the integrity of the medical cannabis testing industry and advance solid scientific fundamentals and understandings of cannabis for the general public.
ACCL Meetings and operations are confidential and focused on the QA/QC of medical cannabis and is in no manner directed towards lending to the intoxication of individuals through the use of cannabis products.*
Member Labs do hereby understand that initial membership in the ACCL is on a probationary period until a suitable “ring-test” or ACCL comparable sample test can be conducted satisfactorily to all existing ACCL members.
Member Lab does also further understand that membership in the ACCL may be terminated in writing immediately upon violation of any of the aforementioned membership requirements.
Many of our members are in different stages of ISO certification and ACCL strongly recommends that all membership consider this method of accreditation. I hope the following pages are informative for both laboratory operators and patients/users alike and please use your local ACCL laboratory; they are your best resource in navigating this sometimes complicated industry. Look for the ACCL logo!
