Good Production Practices - Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for MMPR

If you are applying to Health Canada as a commercial Licensed Producer (LP) to cultivate, distribute and sell cannabis as a business, you will need to submit a set of "Standard Operating Procedures" or "SOPs" as part of your Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR) application.

If you require a set of Standard Operating Procedures for your Licensed Producer (LP) application under the Marijuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (MMPR), please let us know.

Our team will help you and your company in developing and providing standard operating procedures for conducting business under the MMPR.

Division 4 of the MMPR includes Good Production Practices (GPP) requirements relating to the premises, storage of dried marihuana, equipment, sanitation program, standard operating procedures, recall of product, and quality assurance personnel.

In order to achieve purity and quality of the finished dried marihuana product, Good Production Practices as outlined in the MMPR must be followed at all stages of production, packaging, labelling and storage of the marihuana.

As specified in the MMPR, each batch or lot of dried marihuana must be approved for release by the LP's Quality Assurance person, who must have the training, experience and technical knowledge relating to the activity conducted and the requirements of Division 4 of the MMPR.

This means that the Quality Assurance person must have the ability to evaluate the operations of the Licensed Producer (LP) to ensure compliance with Division 4, and the technical knowledge to be able to assess analytical testing results in order to be able to make the determination of whether the dried marihuana is suitable for sale.

The Quality Assurance person is also responsible for investigating quality-related complaints and taking corrective and preventive actions, if necessary.
