Are you sure your SOPs have been validated?
Health Canada requires that your licensed producer application includes validated Standard Operating Procedures. The government needs to know that you have the knowledge and the capability to run a facility in compliance with regulations. GrowerIQ has a full suite of standard operating procedures that can be tailored to your specific facility.
[UPDATE] Because of the interest we get in all things SOPs, our experts decided do a deep dive and expand in The Ultimate Guide to SOPs for the Cannabis Industry: Part I. We also have a Ultimate Guide to SOPs Part II available now!
GrowerIQ's Master Grower, Shlomo Booklin, has worked as Head Grower for some of Canada's leading cannabis cultivation operations, such as Tilray and MedReleaf. Having managed the production of over 100 million plants, he has refined his growing techniques and trained others in the industry on how to produce safe for consumer, high-quality, cost-effective products. Unlike some other consulting firms, GrowerIQ brings you deep industry experience. Shlomo's 30+ years of commercial growing experience means that our cannabis Standard Operating Procedures are based upon best practices that have been proven at scale.
What are validated SOPs?
Anybody can claim they have a sanitation program procedure. Health Canada wants to know that your procedures are validated. This means that there is some way to prove, via external validation or other methods, that your procedures are effective. For example, spraying surface areas in your production space with a cleaner like bleach, and wiping them down immediately thereafter is not effective. Certain pathogens like E. coli require wet surface contact time of at least 30 seconds; others require up to 3 minutes!
The GrowerIQ team, and especially our Microbiologist, has extensive experience creating validated sanitation and other operating procedures, to make sure your product is of the highest quality.
Cannabis Standard Operating Procedures
There are SOPs for every aspect of your operation: sanitation, document retention, and every aspect of the cultivation process. It is important for your team to be regularly trained on these processes to ensure your facility remains in compliance.
