Overview

The Office of Cannabis Management is charged with the permitting of laboratories, establishing testing protocols and standards used by laboratories, and ensuring the laboratories and their staff have the skills, resources and expertise needed to accurately and consistently perform required testing to protect public health and safety as well as enforcement of the provisions under Part 130.

At this time, the Office is not seeking laboratories to perform testing of adult-use and medical cannabis products in NYS. The application window ended on March 31, 2023. The OCM is still soliciting firms to perform third party sampling of adult-use and medical cannabis products in NYS.

Laboratory Application

The Office of Cannabis Management is not accepting applications at this time.  The application window for laboratory permits closed on 3/31/2023. Permitted laboratories are required to notify the Office of a change in ownership, location, scope of testing, technical staff, and major instrument. Please complete and submit the appropriate form(s) listed below.

Laboratory Guidance, Standards and Approved Methods

A cannabis laboratory must ensure that it has a documented quality system and follows the guidance, standards and approved methods established by the Office of Cannabis Management. The New York State Department of Health (NYS DOH) methods are still valid for use under the Office of Cannabis Management for testing both medical and adult use cannabis.
