It’s important to stay on top of GDP–Good Documentation Practices–so that your cannabis business can comply to FDA and other government regulations. Good documentation practices are an important tool that can be used in your company’s compliance with the FDA and other government agencies responsible for the current or future licensing of cannabis products, state-wide or federally.
If you’re running a cannabis or dietary supplement type of GMP production facility, then your products are reliant on being sold well before expiry dates. Failure to manage this means that you’d have expired stock on shelves that can cost you losses and can also compromise the safety of the products you’re providing to the consumer market. FIFO is the industry standard in food production safety.
If your cannabis or dietary supplement business is in production, you’ll need to ensure that you keep excellent records to document and guide each step of manufacturing. The batch production record, or BPR, is one of the most important forms that your facility workers will need to fill out. Batch production records are a crux of any quality assurance system and are necessary to abide by Good Manufacturing Practices, or GMP.
