AOAC INTERNATIONAL is a globally recognized not-for-profit association founded in 1884. To attain its vision of 'worldwide confidence in analytical results,' AOAC serves communities of the analytical sciences by providing the tools and processes necessary to develop voluntary consensus standards or technical standards through stakeholder consensus and working groups in which the fit-for-purpose and method performance criteria are established and fully documented. AOAC provides a science-based solution and its Official Methods of Analysis gives defensibility, credibility, and confidence in decision-making. AOAC Official MethodsSM are accepted and recognized worldwide. AOAC is a valuable tool to government and industry as public and private sectors see the need to work more closely with each other.
