How You Can Help Set Guidelines for Safe Cannabis Production Practices

The demand for medical and recreational cannabis products is surging in Canada, as are the challenges with respect to the safety, security, and sustainability of buildings, premises, facilities, and growing operations handling cannabis.

 

To help ease some of these concerns, the Standards Council of Canada is hosting an international workshop to develop guidelines in these areas.

“Canada’s experience in addressing the unique considerations in cannabis production has led to a call by industry and regulators to ensure that best practices are leveraged to reduce health and safety risks to employees, emergency responders, and the general public,” says Chantal Guay, CEO of the Standards Council of Canada. “SCC is proud to partner with the advisory group UL to facilitate this international discussion and to develop guidance for the benefit of the global market.”

“UL is pleased to work with SCC to support Canada and the global community in developing guidance for emerging industries such as legalized cannabis,” says Joseph Hosey, Vice President and General Manager for UL Canada. “To be successful in Canada and at the global level, companies need a replicable model to help them protect their employees, facilities, and consumers. We’ve spoken with key players who are building premium brands and the safety and security of their operations is paramount.”

The workshop will kick off in November 2020 covering three distinct areas: safety of cannabis facilities, equipment, and oil extraction operations; secure handling of cannabis facilities, operations, and transportation; and good production practices for cannabis. The goal of the workshop is to publish guidelines to submit as seed documents for the creation of a Technical Committee on Cannabis.
