In a good edibles regulatory training course, you will learn: why we need Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs), and why a food safety framework for edible safety is essential for Cultivation, Extraction, Edible Manufacturing, Packaging, Labeling, and Dispensary operations.

Regulatory compliance for cannabis edibles differs in the United States from state to state for those with regulatory oversight. Since there is so much uncertainty about cannabis at the national level, the laws regarding regulations and testing requirements can be confusing.

Canada has federal laws and provincial (Canada has provinces instead of states) government laws and regulations for licensing, cultivation and retail sales.

The international regulatory landscape also varies. As of mid-2021, cannabis is fully legal in Uruguay, but consumers must register.

Personal use in private is decriminalized in South Africa, and many of the Central and South American countries.

Many countries bridge the road to cannabis legalization with regulation of medical marijuana first, as seen in the majority of the American states.

For United States and Canadian manufacturers wanting to get cannabis edibles into European markets, the World Health Organization (WHO) version of GMP is used by pharmaceutical regulators. The European Union’s EU-GMP standards are seen as roughly equivalent to the WHO version of GMP.

This discussion thread is focused on compliance education and training for the C+H edibles firm.

We recommend that you explore a training solution if you want to get into this amazingly, fast growing, marketplace.

In a good edibles regulatory training course, you will learn: why we need GMPs, and why a food safety framework for edible safety is essential for Cultivation, Extraction, Edible Manufacturing, Packaging, Labeling, and Dispensary operations.

Here's the terms you will encounter...

Audit
The systematic, independent, and documented examination (through observation, investigation, records review, discussions with employees of the audited entity, and, as appropriate, sampling and laboratory analysis) to assess a supplier’s food safety processes and procedures.

Seed-To-Sale
When an edibles company is vertically integrated,  means that the cultivation of cannabis and through all processing stages ending at a sales dispensary are ALL within the company's control. That is called “seed-to-sale”.

HACCP (Hazards Analysis and Critical Control Points)
A systematic approach to the identification, evaluation, and control of food safety hazards.

Current Good Manufacturing Practices, cGMPs
Procedures and policies in support of a HACCP, food or edible safety plan.

Preventive Controls
Risk-based, reasonably appropriate procedures, practices, and processes that one would employ to significantly minimize or prevent the hazards identified under the hazard analysis that are consistent with the current scientific understanding of safe food manufacturing, processing, packing, or holding at the time of the analysis.

Edibles Safety Plan
Facility-specific. Product or line specific. Written GMPs and GCPs, associated SOPs, hazard analysis, preventive controls, associated monitoring and verification records, and recall plan. Implementation of the written plan. Corrections, corrective action and root cause investigations of deviation from the plan. Analogous to food safety plan in the food industry.

Preventive Controls Qualified Individual (PCQI)
or (PCQI) means a qualified individual who has successfully completed training in the development and application of risk-based preventive controls at least equivalent to that received under a standardized curriculum recognized as adequate by FDA or is otherwise qualified through job experience to develop and apply a food safety system.

Standard Operating Procedure, SOP
Written directions for who is responsible, the frequency, supplies and steps to follow in a procedure. There is an associated record for documentation of the procedure.
