The processing of hemp seed results in several consumer-ready food products in which hemp is the main or sole ingredient and these products may be consumed with no kill step to manage food safety risk. Minimum levels of food safety and related shelf-life attributes are defined in this specification to protect buyers and consumers from food safety risk where possible and address shelf life as it relates to food safety or spoilage or both. This specification applies to hemp food processors, food companies, wholesalers, regulatory bodies, and analytical laboratories.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
