Course Overview

Record Keeping is of vital importance to the regulated cannabis industry because it supports various important functions including making or breaking Health Canada inspections. Documentation is the legal proof that work was adequately performed and provides a written history of company and products, as well proving to regulators that the company follows its regulatory commitments. Retention periods for the cannabis industry can be up to 25 years for some records, therefore they must be appropriately protected whether it be on or off site.
