and high-quality laboratory information for its members
To meet these
goals, AOAC has three methods validation programs, the AOAC® Official
MethodsSM Program® Peer-Verified MethodsSM
Program, and the AOAC® Performance Tested MethodsSM Program. AOAC is focusing very closely on
streamlining its methods review process and providing new methods in areas of
increasing international interest, such as nutraceuticals and genetically
modified organisms (GMOs).
International laboratory accreditation as a
requirement for participation in the global marketplace has given AOAC
INTERNATIONAL an opportunity to undertake a leadership role in developing
criteria for laboratory accreditation. Members of the AOAC Laboratory
Accreditation Criteria Committee (ALACC) have provided laboratory managers with
the guidance they need to meet ISO 17025 requirements. The AOAC®
Laboratory Proficiency TestingSM Program is also playing a key role by providing
laboratories with a means for proving the accuracy and reliability of their test
results to both their customers and accrediting bodies. Laboratories must depend
on the results from a proficiency-testing program to maintain their business.
The AOAC® Laboratory Proficiency TestingSM
Program has earned the confidence of its customers by being among the first
accredited proficiency testing programs.
