AOAC CASP SMPRs for Comment

DRAFT AOAC SMPR 2018.XXX; Version 2, July 23, 2019 1 2 Method Name: 3

Identification and Quantitation of Selected Residual Solvents in Dried

4 5

Cannabis Materials

Intended Use : 6 7 1. Purpose: AOAC SMPRs describe the minimum recommended performance characteristics to be used 8 during the evaluation of a method. The evaluation may be an on-site verification, a single-laboratory 9 validation, or a multi-site collaborative study. SMPRs are written and adopted by AOAC Stakeholder 10 Panels composed of representatives from the industry, regulatory organizations, contract 11 laboratories, test kit manufacturers, and academic institutions. AOAC SMPRs are used by AOAC Expert 12 Review Panels in their evaluation of validation study data for method being considered for 13 Performance Tested Methods or AOAC Official Methods of Analysis , and can be used as acceptance 14 criteria for verification at user laboratories. Consensus-based Reference method.
