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 – 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.
