Building and Fostering Resilience Through Accreditation

ANAB Webinar – Thursday, January 19, 2023 – 2:00pm to 3:00pm Eastern

 

Summary

Uncertainty and changes in everyday life have radically impacted us all during the past few years. While we have had to change the overall approach regarding where, when, and sometimes how we work, what hasn’t changed is the need to work competently, consistently, and impartially. Many organizations have navigated the uncertainty and changes seamlessly and have continued to thrive. Some might ask, how? How, in the face of these major challenges, changes, and uncertainty, did they do it? Through resilience. Many organizations know they need to build resilience, as it provides the ability to bounce back and grow in the face of adversity. But how do we build and foster organizational resilience? One way is through Accreditation! This webinar will define organizational resilience, present a few elements of resilience and qualities of being resilient, as well as provide information on how accreditation can provide a foundation upon which to build and foster organizational resilience.

  • Acquire information regarding the elements and qualities of resilience

Description:

The quality of cannabis products is impacted by many different factors. From seed to sale, positive and negative influences can affect the quality of the product. Aspects, such as soil composition and consistency, harvesting, processing, extracting, sampling, sample preparation, and packaging, all feed into the final quality of cannabis products. Risks along the supply chain can be identified and eliminated or reduced to enhance quality. Testing of cannabis products by an ISO/IEC 17025 accredited laboratory is one way to reduce risks and ensure the quality of products. Accreditation of laboratories by an internationally recognized accreditation body can demonstrate the laboratory's ability to produce precise and accurate test data, through continuous oversight to ensure technical competence is maintained. Join this webinar where we will evaluate factors that could influence the quality of cannabis products from seed to final packaging.
