The leading US testing standards organization ASTM International has launched a new subcommittee to support the growing discussions on cannabis regulations between policymakers, scientists, and the general public.

“With a patchwork of regulations across state, federal, and international levels, this subcommittee will be valuable to industry and government stakeholders as a means to collaborate,” David Vaillencourt, current chair of the new government liaison subcommittee, said in a statement.

“It’s really going to facilitate dialogue that will be key as we look ahead to a global marketplace in the coming years.”

As of October 2021, ASTM’s main committee on cannabis, its D37 committee, has published over 25 standards for the cannabis and hemp industries, including standards for testing, processing, cleaning, transporting, and handling cannabis. More than 70 standards are currently in development.

The organization also recently provided public comment on the US Senate’s proposed Cannabis Administration and Opportunity Act.
