Inspection Preparedness Assessment
Americans for Safe Access’ (ASA) created Patient Focused Certification (PFC) to address issues of quality control and product safety in the cannabis industry and to ensure that patients, healthcare providers, and government regulators can rely on high-quality cannabis products and services. PFC helps companies that are cultivating, manufacturing, analyzing, and distributing these products achieve their commitment to quality and product safety.
Through ASA’s commitment to safe access for patients, we want to help medical cannabis businesses make it through the licensing process. We created the Inspection Preparedness Assessment specifically to help businesses prepare for licensing.
The Inspection Preparedness Assessment will include:
Mock inspection with a PFC auditor
Spot check of SOPs for regulatory compliance
Review of state inspection checklist
Overview of thing inspectors may be looking for (including the most common violations that often result in heavy fines and potentially the denial or loss of an operating license)
This is a confidential service that takes 3-4 hours. These services will not only prepare you for the pending state inspections but they will also allow your business to plan and budget for needed improvements.
Here are a few quotes from PFC clients in MD that just passed their inspections:
"In this evolving industry with so much to learn and limited guidance, Americans for Safe Access PFC helped our company not only prepare for and pass inspection, but to exemplify best in class practices to be a model for cultivation" - Krissy Bernazani, RPh, Clinical Director, Freestate Wellness
“We called PFC prior to our final inspection. Within a week an auditor conducted a walkthrough of the facility and helped us prepare for the licensing inspection. Having this pre-state inspection allowed us to see improvements we could make in our procedures and our facility prior to our final inspection.” - Gina Hopkins, Compliance Officer, ForwardGro
