As an emerging industry the rules and regulations impacting license holders will continue to evolve, making it crucial for operators to have a clear understanding and interpretation regarding applicable laws, and any pending changes. Concentrate Compliance ensures licensed businesses are operating in full compliance of the state mandated rules and regulations, in addition to consideration for Federal rules and regulations anticipated to impact the emerging cannabis industry. Services include the development of custom Standard Operating Procedure manuals, identifying and interpreting applicable rules and regulations, facility inspections and record audits to ensure compliance.
Standard Operating Procedures
All licensed operations are required to develop Standard Operating Procedures that not only ensures compliance with state mandated rules and regulations, but also a safe work environment for all staff, including emergency procedures. Concentrate Consulting develops custom Standard Operating Procedures related to cultivation, extraction, manufacturing and dispensary operations that are unique for each client and state. These custom manuals are required during the license application process, and continued operation of a licensed business. Service related to the development of S.O.P. manuals also includes updates to these manuals as the operation evolves, and applicable rules and regulations are revised.
Through out the United States, each individual state that adopts a medical and/or recreational marijuana program is responsible for developing their rules and regulations applicable to licensed operations. These rules and regulations are unique for each state, and it has been proven to be extremely difficult for operators to identify and interpret the rules and regulations that impact their operations. Furthermore, as an emerging industry, it has become a common practice for these rules and regulations to experience multiple revisions as state regulators learn more about the industry. Concentrate Compliance provides in depth understanding and interpretation of the rules and regulations applicable to their operations, and provides notification to clients regarding pending changes to these rules and regulations in order to evolve within this ever-changing landscape.
Concentrate Compliance services includes on-site facility (cultivation, extraction, manufacturing and dispensary) inspections to ensure 100% compliance. Our team of inspectors understands the government agencies and detailed rules and regulations impacting operators in order to identify potential hazards and compliance infractions. These inspections identify compliance and safety issues in advance, in order to allow business owners to make the necessary adjustments before jeopardizing their license or incurring any fines. Utilizing Concentrate Compliance to perform facility inspections is the most comprehensive solution to ensure compliant and safe operations for licensed businesses.
Licensed businesses are accountable for the detailed tracking of inventory to ensure compliant operations. Each state adopts software to monitor inventory tracking, and provides basic training to ensure operators perform accurate data entry related to inventory tracking. Frequently the training provided is inadequate for staff to obtain a comprehensive understanding of inventory tracking protocols, resulting in compliance infractions. The Concentrate Compliance team represents experts in these software solutions, providing in depth training and auditing services to ensure inventory tracking is 100% accurate.
