SAMPLING PROCEDURES

The CDHPE Reference Library’s sample collection protocols must be used for the collection of marijuana/marijuana product samples submitted to marijuana testing facilities for required testing in accordance with R 1504 A 1 and M 1504 A 1.

COMBINING REQUIRED TESTS

You may elect to submit each Test Batch separately, but the MED also gives you the option of combining multiple tests into one Test Batch, which you can submit using one METRC tag.

MED Industry Bulletin 17-09 states:
The Samples collected may be composited into a single physical package and submitted as a single Test Batch. That single Test Batch may be submitted for multiple required tests.

Please note:
You can no longer combine multiple harvest or production batches into a single Test.
