Good Manufacturing Practices

Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) is the aspect of quality assurance that ensures that medicinal products are consistently produced and controlled to the quality standards appropriate to their intended use and as required by the product specification. The World Health Assembly accepted the first version of the Certification Scheme on the quality of pharmaceutical products.

GMP defines quality measures for both production and quality control and defines general measures to ensure that processes necessary for production and testing are clearly defined, validated, reviewed, and documented and that the personnel, premises, and materials are suitable for the production of pharmaceuticals and biologicals including vaccines.

Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) are, in most cases, interchangeable. GMP meaning the basic regulation promulgated by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) ensure that manufacturers are taking proactive steps to guarantee their products are safe and effective. cGMP, on the other hand, was implemented by the FDA to ensure continuous improvement in the approach of manufacturers to product quality. 

The GMP Unified Standards for the Cannabis Industry Aim to Elevate Product Quality & Safety by Establishing Comprehensive Guidelines That Span Across All Key Facets of the Industry, Including Cultivation, Extraction, & Retail. These Standards Are Crafted to Be Proactive, Focusing on Quality Management Throughout the Production Process, Rather Than Solely Relying on Post-Production Testing. This Approach Not Only Enhances Consumer Safety but Also Promotes Operational Efficiency & Product Consistency Within the Cannabis Sector.

Good Laboratory Practices

Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) is a quality system of management controls for research laboratories and organizations to ensure the uniformity, consistency, reliability, reproducibility, quality, and integrity of products in development for human or animal health (including pharmaceuticals) through non-clinical safety tests; from physio-chemical properties.

Good Laboratory Practices are put in place to protect the quality of laboratory data. In any pharmaceutical lab, Good Laboratory Practice is based on written documentation of the work being done. These are Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs). SOPs detail the different practices to follow for the purpose of cannabis quality assurance standards. 

The main goal is to promote consistency across all practices in a laboratory setting. SOPs should cover the purpose of a procedure, the responsible personnel, and the step-by-step actions that need to be taken. With clear guidelines, labs can ensure transparency and accountability in the event of any production errors. It is essential that quality is not sacrificed at any production stage.

Good Laboratory Practices Form the Bedrock Upon Which High-Quality, Reliable & Reproducible Laboratory Work Is Built. By Adhering to These Principles, Laboratories Can Assure Stakeholders of the Integrity & Reliability of Their Data, Thus Contributing to the Advancement of Scientific Knowledge & the Development of Safe & Effective Products & Technologies. Enhanceing the Credibility of Research.

Good Agriculture & Collection Practices

Good Agricultural and Collection Practices (GACP) guidelines were developed to create a single supranational framework to ensure appropriate and consistent quality in the cultivation and production of medicinal plants and herbal substances. They were developed by the World Health Organization (WHO) with the aim of improving the quality of medicinal plants being used in herbal medicines in the commercial market.

The GACP guidelines provide a basis for homogenized national or regional standards for the cultivation and collection of medicinal plants and should therefore be viewed as an effective “working tool” whose benefits are to reduce waste, ensure the quality of raw material, and gain market credibility.

Production and primary processing of medicinal plants and herbal substances have a direct influence on the final quality of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) produced and such production and primary processing actions can constitute the first step in the quality assurance process, which is central to compliance with the GACP guidelines.

That Un-Fun Responsible Vendor Training

Date: May 22, 2024
From the desk of Evan Erickson

Despite common misconceptions, Responsible Vendor Training (RVT) is far from being a mundane obligation. In fact, when utilized correctly, it can significantly grow your cannabis business and revenue.

The essentials cover effective methods, key performance indicators, essential terminology, and identifying team members responsible for compliance training.

Let’s first understand what role this certification encompasess…

RVT is pivotal for ensuring compliance, enhancing customer service, maintaining operational standards, and ultimately, safeguarding your business’s license. It’s not merely a regulatory requirement; it’s a strategic tool for growth and stability.

The goal of certification is to guide your team through the entirety of compliance awareness, ensuring they not only understand regulations but also apply them effectively in day-to-day operations.

Embracing Effective Responsible Vendor Training

By understanding and implementing the skills of a responsible cannabis vendor, you’ll expedite your business potential, ensuring your team is knowledgeable, your operation is compliant, and your customers are safe.

It’s an often-overlooked aspect of operations, but when a team has consistent procedures and a shared- knowledge base, the growth is limitless.  Consistency, compliance, and customer satisfaction are just a few of the many benefits of investing in Responsible Vendor Training for your team…

Revolutionize Your Operating Procedures and Stay Compliant with RVT Responsible Vendor Training!

Think RVT is just a regulatory hoop? Think again! It’s your powerhouse tool for growth and compliance. Jump into the world of RVT,  where you’ll navigate three dynamic training realms:

The Types of Topics You’ll Cover...

Remember, RVT isn’t just a requirement; it’s your secret weapon in a competitive market. With studies showing the importance of training in maintaining compliance and customer trust, it’s clear that taking just ANY training is going to cut it.

Ensuring staff are well-versed in compliance, health and safety, and customer education, is the backbone of integrity in the cannabis market.

Maintaining meticulous training records is not only a regulatory mandate but also a testament to a business’s dedication to responsible operations.

Tracking the Impact of Responsible Vendor Training
Harnessing the Power of Data in Responsible Vendor Training

Do you know how we ensure the effectiveness of our Responsible Vendor Training (RVT)? We track it… meticulously. Let’s dive into some data:

Consider this scenario – a detailed report illustrates the compliance rates across various cannabis businesses before and after implementing our RVT program. The findings don’t lie:

Another report demonstrates how well-trained staff significantly reduced safety incidents in the workplace. Before RVT, safety breaches were a concern, with an occurrence rate of about 30%. After comprehensive training, these incidents plummeted to below 10%.

The message is clear:

The Unrivaled Impact of Effective Training in the Cannabis Industry

Whether your team’s knowledge of cannabis laws has gaps, their customer service skills need polishing, or their safety practices are not up to par, nothing transforms a cannabis business like effective Responsible Vendor Training.

Hands down, there is no other strategy that enhances compliance, improves safety, and boosts customer satisfaction in the cannabis industry like RVT.

This isn’t just about meeting legal requirements; it’s about elevating your business to new heights of professionalism and trust.

The "Un-Fun," but Essential Stuff
...And Your Customers Will Love You & Look Forward Shopping With Your Employees.

Just like the persistent myth that compliance programs are “un-fun” and the belief that Responsible Vendor Training (RVT) is just a tedious legal formality, let us tell you, it’s far from the truth…

Let’s see the real impact of consistent training for the cannabis industry’s workers…

Just like ending prohibition revolutionized the alcohol industry, legalization is revolutionizing the cannabis industry and RVT is its approach to gov’t compliance and consumer safety.

A study by Buller et al. (2017) in the American Journal of Public Health revealed a striking improvement in compliance rates following RVT.

Pre-RTV training, compliance with critical ID checking regulations was sitting at a moderate 69%…

So, why do we emphasize RVT? It’s not just about avoiding penalties. The real goal of RVT is to guide your team through every stage of compliance – from understanding laws to effective customer interaction.

Starting from the foundational knowledge of laws and regulations, they’ll navigate through the complexities of ID verification, understand the nuances of customer service, and eventually, become advocates of safe and responsible cannabis sales.

With RVT, it’s about moving from risk to responsibility, from compliance to excellence.

And just like with government compliance, where tracking a single product from “Seed-to-Sale” is required, in RVT, every training session and compliance check adds value to your business, ensuring safety and growth in your business.

Well then, the pressing question arises…

"If Responsible Vendor Training is so crucial, why does it seem so daunting and overwhelming?"

Let’s be candid: Navigating state compliance regulations has become increasingly challenging. 

The cost of ensuring compliance is on the rise. Regulations in the cannabis industry are constantly changing, becoming more stringent.

Navigating these regulations?

It’s like trying to solve a constantly evolving puzzle. The landscape of legal compliance has never been more intricate, and gaining the trust and understanding of your team is an uphill battle.

In this ever-changing environment, it’s natural to encounter confusion, apprehension, and even frustration.

Costs associated with compliance are increasing, while understanding the nuances of these laws is akin to finding your way through a densely crowded and ever-changing maze.

Dispensary owners often express their struggles, as staying compliant feels like navigating through a sticky web of regulations. As challenging as it is to maintain an engaged team in an industry that is moving so quickly, your employees will appreciate knowing exactly how to stay compliant.  They’ll thank you. 

But here’s our assurance, drawn from our in-depth experience and observation in the cannabis industry: This training doesn’t have to be difficult, drawn-out, or tedious. 

The reality is, that just as government regulations are an annoyance, they are crucial. Responsible Cannabis Vendor Certification Programs ensure that there is nothing to second guess, allowing you to operate smoothly, compliantly, and upward…

You Can Still Establish a Reliable System That Ensures Compliance at the Push of a Button...

The Responsible Vendor Training program offers a clear, step-by-step framework for implementing effective compliance strategies in the ever-evolving cannabis industry.

From an in-depth understanding of state laws and regulations to practical execution and recordkeeping, you’ll master all aspects needed to maintain compliance and mitigate risks.

You’ll learn how to engage your team effectively, ensure understanding and retention of critical information, and manage any challenges that arise.

Alongside the detailed training modules, you’ll receive a resource kit filled with notes, tools, templates, and checklists, enabling you to apply your newfound knowledge in real-world scenarios.

Applying these resources effectively means walking away with a solid compliance strategy, an engaged team, and a system in place to monitor ongoing adherence.

You will establish a sustainable and efficient process to maintain compliance as an integral part of your business operations.

This program is ideal for anyone aiming to enhance their knowledge of cannabis compliance, improve their operational standards, and safeguard their business.

...And Your Team Will Embrace It & Look Forward to Their Training Sessions...
