Invitation: Join a Cannabis Quality Control Standards Work Group

Accepting Applications for the LCB Cannabis Quality Control Standards Work Group

Are you interested in the recent changes to Washington’s cannabis quality control standards? The Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board (LCB) is accepting applications for a small work group to evaluate the effectiveness of updated cannabis quality control standards contained in LCB administrative rules. Recent updates to these rules took effect on April 2, 2022, revising rules in chapter 314-55 WAC.

The updates to these rules included changes to cannabis sampling and testing standards, and introduced the new rule requiring laboratory pesticide testing for all cannabis products produced and sold in Washington.

If you answered “yes,” let us know!

We’re looking for cannabis consumers, public health and safety professionals, local government officials, cannabis licensees, or those with experience in the testing standards completed in 2022. 

About the Cannabis Quality Control Standards Work Group

The Quality Control Standards Work Group will meet virtually, via Microsoft Teams. The first work group meeting is planned for mid-December 2022, and will last one hour. Depending on participation, the work group may be extended for up to six meetings through 2023. The work group charter is posted here.
