Quality Systems - Quality assurance is one subject that is unclear to many organizations who are applying to become Licensed Producers. Section 60.1.a.ii of the ACMPR states that each LP must employ a QAP who has the training, experience, and technical knowledge relating to the activity conducted and the requirements of Division 4. LP applicants need to demonstrate that their QAP candidate has relevant experience in addition to knowledge and training.
Record Keeping - When submitting an application to Health Canada to become a Licensed Producer, Section 11 Record Keeping of the � "Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations" (ACMPR) is extremely important. Health Canada requirements for Record keeping are very complicated and a major stumbling block for most applicants. Ample Organics is the most widely adopted business platform for licensed producers operating in the Canadian medical marijuana industry. Their software has been designed from the ground up to be fully compliant with Health Canada�s Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations. PipeDreemz Inc. recommends and supports Ample Organics software.
GPP/GMP - Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) are the part of quality assurance that ensures that drugs are consistently produced and controlled in such a way to meet the quality standards appropriate to their intended use, as required by Health Canada. Requirements and inspections are conducted to verify compliance with GMP which is a requirement for the issuance of an establishment licence. To ensure a uniform application of these requirements and help the industry to comply, PipeDreemz Inc. has developed Good Manufacturing Practices Guidelines for the MMPR as well as a series of other related documents. Note: Health Canada refers to Good Production Practices in the ACMPR which in fact is Good Manufacturing Practices.
Physical Security Requirements - The safeguarding of controlled substances is an issue that confronts all applicants. Health Canada limits the handling of these substances through policies, guidelines and legislation such as the CDSA, the Narcotic Control Regulations(NCR) and the ACMPR. Cannabis, its preparations, and derivatives as listed under Schedule II of the CDSA are included in the definition of a controlled substance. Applicants must have a comprehensive security strategy and articulate it to Health Canada. PipeDreemz Inc. works with the leading security contractors in Canada to keep applications current. PipeDreemz Inc. will work with applicants to ensure that the controlled substances are adequately secured and safeguarded at all times for public safety and to minimize risks of diversion.
