Live Webinar – Good Production Practices (GPP) and Good Agricultural and Collection Practices (GACP) for Cannabis Industry – Canada & Europe

By |

Description:

In order to ensure appropriate and consistent quality of medicinal/herbal substances, it is necessary to establish good practices in growing, harvesting, and processing operations. Canada’s Access to Cannabis for Medicinal Products Regulations (ACMPR) requires Licensed Producers to implement and adhere to Good Production Practices (GPP). In Europe, European Medicinal Agency (EMEA) requires adherence to Good Agricultural and collection Practices (GACP) for growing and harvesting. Both GACP and GPP are designed to ensure full traceability back to the seed source for each crop. Following GACP and GPP standards ensures that only the highest quality plants are grown and harvested.

Live Webinar – Sanitation Program for Cannabis Production – Cannabis Act

By |

Course Overview:

Good Production Practices (GPP) of the Cannabis Act mandates that Licensed Producers ensure the cleanliness of the premises and equipment. Having effective sanitation and pre-operational Inspection procedures can minimize the risk of contamination of your product, ingredients, processing aids, packaging materials, and product contact surfaces.

It is therefore extremely important to understand the fundamental principle of sanitation procedures and to implement and use these procedures effectively. Lack of proper and validated cleaning and sanitation program can result in costly contamination, return of products, and recalls.

This course and workshop concentrate on three important aspects of an effective sanitation program; Premise, Equipment and Personnel. Participants are given a thorough understanding of the importance of cleaning and sanitizing procedures and their responsibilities, and why these are important parts of their (and not cleaners`) jobs.

Live Webinar – Cannabis Micro Licence Application Process and Requirements

By |

Course Overview:

The Cannabis Act establishes that an application for one of the Micro Cultivation/Processing Licence must be filed with Health Canada in the form and manner specified by the Minister and must include the information required by the Minister.

Although security requirements are less demanding in comparison to obtaining a Standard Cultivation/Processing Licence, the application process to acquire a Micro Licence under the Cannabis Act can still be complicated and requires undergoing a strict and thorough review by Health Canada. Applicants must ensure that the information provided in the application is detailed and accurate and clearly demonstrates that they are compliant with all the requirements of the Act.

Live Webinar – GMP and GACP for Cannabis Industry

By |

Course Overview:

Currently, there are no GMP requirements for cannabis products, it’s almost certain that in the future, cannabis regulations will require GMP certification for Licensed Producers (LPs) to receive and maintain their license. Even now, sales opportunities may be lost by not maintaining GMP certification as exporting cannabis for medicinal purposes to Europe requires GMP compliance. As a result, more and more consumers will expect to see the certification on the product they buy. For business to business cannabis sales, many LPs are already requiring GMP certification from any other LPs they buy product from.

Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) is a system for ensuring that products are consistently produced and controlled according to quality standards. It is designed to minimize the risks involved in any production that cannot be eliminated through testing the final product.

GMP covers all aspects of production from the starting materials, premises and equipment to the training and personal hygiene of staff. Detailed, written procedures are essential for each process that could affect the quality of the finished product. There must be systems to provide documented proof that correct procedures are consistently followed at each step in the manufacturing process – every time a product is made.

In Europe, European Medicinal Agency (EMEA) requires adherence to Good Agricultural and collection Practices (GACP) for growing and harvesting of herbal medicine. Both GACP and GMP are designed to ensure full traceability back to the seed source for each crop. Following GACP and GMP standards ensures that only the highest quality plants are grown and harvested.

Live Webinar – Cannabis Retail Application Process and Requirements

By |

Course Overview:

The Cannabis Act establishes that provincial, territorial and municipal governments will determine the framework for the retail distribution of cannabis. As a result of each province determining their own retail model, a patchwork system has formed across Canada with different rules and regulations depending on what province and municipality you plan to operate in. Opportunities to establish private cannabis retail businesses will be available in Ontario, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Yukon, Nunavut, Newfoundland and Labrador. Applications for a Cannabis Retail Licence will be primarily handled by the liquor and gaming control boards of each province.

Although the application process in each province will be slightly different in terms of store, security, reporting and application requirements, best practices and what to expect when submitting an application can still be deduced. Even without full clarity on what regulations will look like in Ontario, many potential retailers are already trying to prepare themselves to ensure that they will successfully obtain the required licence(s) and authorization.

This webinar discusses the application process including the form and manner for submitting an application for a Cannabis Retail Licence in Ontario and the information that is required to be submitted
