Accreditation

 

OG Analytical is now

an ORELAP accredited

laboratory!

 

We're proud to announce that we received our ORELAP accreditation on September 2nd, 2016. The Oregon Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Program (ORELAP) accredits laboratories to the TNI Standard as a part of the National Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Program. The TNI Standard is a very strict set of guidelines that ensures the laboratory is competent to perform the analytical work included in the accreditation scope. A demonstration of competency includes at least two proficiency tests per year, per analyte, among many, many other qualifications. OG Analytical is accredited for potency, pesticides, residual solvents, water activity, moisture content, and field sampling as required by Oregon Marijuana Law to test all types of regulatory cannabis samples. Our full scope of accreditation is listed below.

Each analysis we perform requires different preparation and analytical techniques (methods), and thus they are accredited separately. A laboratory that applies for accreditation of each analysis on each sample type may not meet the requirements of the TNI Standard for each one. A list of ORELAP accredited cannabis laboratories is on the Oregon Health Authority website but does not include the specific analyses each laboratory is accredited for. It's important to review the accreditation scope of any analytical laboratory that you contract with for regulatory services. Our scope of accreditation is 6 pages long and lists each analyte required by law for both biological and solid samples as required in the services listed above. If you would like to see our certificate or our scope documentation, we're happy to present them upon request.

You may have noticed that we've been tightening up our procedures in the last year; under ORELAP accreditation, we have to run a tight ship. This means additional documentation in every procedure, from daily logging of refridgerator temperatures and regular calibration of all balances and thermometers all the way to complete traceability of all consumables used in the analysis of each sample. We've implemented over 100 new documents in the last year as part of our effort to improve the defensibility of the data we produce. This ensures that you can trust our data with the full backing of the scientific scrutiny and integrity of the TNI Standard. And if clients ever have questions about our data, we have a completely traceable log of each event.

We welcome and even encourage our clients to do a Quality Systems Review when contracting our services. Our Quality Systems Documentation manual is a critical component to our work and we'll proudly share it under NDA upon request. We take pride in what we do, and we want you to as well.
