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.
An SOP or Standard Operating Procedure is something that all types of organizations, manufacturers, and laboratories can benefit from in the cannabis industry. For a cannabis manufacturer, SOPs can help in achieving Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) compliance. If your facility hasn’t created standard operating procedures yet, or they’re only at the basic level, you’ll benefit from learning how to write them.
In the past, there was little control over the quality or safety of cannabis when purchasing on the street. Now that legalized sellers are offering it from their pharmacies, consumers want to be assured that they are only purchasing products from manufacturers that are conforming to safety requirements and regulations.
