GMP is an overriding set of principals which govern the quality of every aspect of making a drug. It is a set of regulations, mandated by Health Canada’s Therapeutic Products Program (TPP), that ensures that the product (drug) offered for sale to the public is fit for its intended use and is safe. (Termed cGMP in the USA)
Good Production Practices (GPP):
for the propagation & cultivation of medical marijuana / cannabis
Ensures that your proposed production facilities are designed and constructed in a manner that will comply with the GMP requirements.
A set of internationally harmonized regulations, mandated by the Environmental Directorate of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).
for products used in clinical trials, such as drugs, natural health products (NHPs), cannabis & extracts, and medical devices.
for drug Adverse Reaction Reporting (ADR)
HACCP / ISO 22000 for food production
HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) is a scientific system used in food production, to prevent problems, by applying controls at points in a food production process, where hazards could be controlled, reduced, or eliminated.
This is a system to effectively manage your business, in order to provide your product or services to your clients, in a consistent, accountable, and traceable manner.
This standard is presently regulated by Health Canada’s “Therapeutic Products Programme” (TPP) and is similar to the European Union’s EN 46000 Standard. It is soon to be a requirement in Canada, in order to harmonize with other parts of the world. ISO 13488 is the same as ISO 13485, with the exclusion of the requirements for “Design Control”.
A set of internationally created and recognized guidelines (EMS) that allow companies to address the environmental impact of their products, services and business practices. Its focus is on prevention and continuous improvement.
This standard was developed specifically to give guidance to lab managers on both quality management and the technical requirements for the proper operation of a laboratory. Thus, ISO 17025 can be thought of as the technical compliment to ISO 9000. As a matter of fact, any organization who meets the requirements for ISO 17025 automatically is ISO 9000 compliant (but the converse is not true).
This is the documented act of demonstrating that any of your critical procedures, processes, equipment, materials, activities, or systems will consistently lead to expected results.
To assess compliance to the regulations.
Stability Protocol is mandated by Health Canada’s Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). It is to determine the normal shelf life of the product under recommended storage conditions.
For Narcotics & Controlled Substances, including for cannabis (marijuana) under the ACMPR-MMPR.
