Sample Testing and Reporting Policy
The sample submission process acts as the contract between Apricot Analytics and the client requesting the analysis of the submitted sample. This contract is for the delivery of one certificate of analysis for one analyzed sample.
Certificates of Analysis (CoA) may be issued as follows:
- Company X submits a sample and is issued a CoA in Company X’s name.
- Company X submits a sample on behalf of Client Y and a CoA is issued in Client Y’s name. This is common for contract manufacturers submitting samples for their clients.
Certificates of Analysis MAY NOT be issued as follows:
- Company X submits a sample and one analysis is performed and multiple CoA’s are issued for Company X’s clients.
If a contract manufacturer requires multiple CoA’s from a single production batch, an analysis will need to be performed for each client, even if the production batch has been tested previously.
