GPP-QUALITY ASSURANCE  REPORT 

WE HAVE THE SKILLS / EXPERIENCE ALONG WITH QUALIFIED QUALITY ASSURANCE EXPERTS WHO CAN WRITE THE GPP REPORT FOR FILING WITH the CANNABIS PRODUCER'S LICENSE APPLICATION

The GPP report is the key document in the Cannabis Licence application. It covers the entire process from seed to sale and  describes Health Canada's GPP compliance which we draft and is signed by your QUALITY ASSURANCE PERSON (QAP) for a processing license or a Master Grower for a cultivation license. We can assist you in finding this key employee to ensure they meet the  strict criteria set down by Health Canada.

There are high-quality standards you need to meet for good production  practices (GPP) such as personnel, packaging, shipping, operations, premises, sanitation, security, cleaning and record keeping. Canada is a world leader in not only setting quality standards in Canadian Food & Drugs Administration but also ensuring that these standards are adhered to meet similar strict industry and legal standards used in growing and processing Cannabis.

The Cannabis Regulations also read with the Canadian Food and Environmental Safety Regulations and other associated legislation describe the quality requirements that the License Holder/Producer is required to meet when filing the application for a Cannabis producer’s license.

The GPP Quality Assurance Report  requirements are also described in the Natural Products Act & Regulations, read together with Cannabis Regulations. It requires more than the interpretation of these requirements, but a thorough knowledge of quality assurance, good production practices (GPP), and the standard operating procedures (SOPs) as well as Hazard Critical Control Analysis Points to become operational.
