March 19, 2020, Frederick, MD – A2LA is pleased to announce the accreditation of Green Leaf Laboratory in Portland, Oregon for cannabis testing. Green Leaf Laboratory is the not only A2LA’s first accredited cannabis laboratory in the state or Oregon, but also the first to be accredited to ISO/IEC 17025:2017.
“Green Leaf Lab has been a leader in the cannabis industry since 2011”, said Rowshan Reordan of Green Lead Lab. “Receiving our ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation, in addition to required State accreditation, affirms our commitment to quality science and leadership in this industry. Working with A2LA and being recognized as the first A2LA accredited laboratory in Oregon has been a great experience. We appreciated the thoroughness in their accreditation process and their commitment to excellence. It confirmed our confidence in choosing A2LA, as well as our own internal quality control process. We look forward to a successful future with A2LA and continuing our commitment to leadership and excellence in the industry.”
“We congratulate Green Leaf Laboratories on becoming the first cannabis testing laboratory accredited to ISO/IEC 17025:2017 in the state of Oregon”, said Anna Williams, Accreditation Supervisor at A2LA. “A2LA is excited to see testing laboratories think outside of the box and elect to use our services in states not mandating them. This highlights the ever-growing presence and validity of both ISO/IEC 17025 and A2LA in the cannabis industry in the United States. We look forward to our continued relationship with Green Leaf Laboratory in serving their accreditation needs.”
Achieving ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation by A2LA is the pinnacle in third-party laboratory accreditation, as it confirms that laboratories have management, quality, and technical systems in place to ensure accurate and reliable analyses, as well as proper administrative processes to ensure that all aspects related to the sample, the analysis, and the reporting are standardized, measured, and monitored.
