Cannabis, Hemp & CBD

As States begin to legalize and regulate the cannabis industry, important considerations must be addressed, such as the development and implementation of Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) and a quality system that meets state regulations. Because states vary in their interpretation of how cannabis, CBD and hemp should be regulated, it is critical to have a team of experts who understand the specific GMP requirements for dietary supplements, pharmaceuticals and foods, as well as many state regulatory requirements surrounding this emerging product. EAS team of consultants will assist you with interpreting the regulations and determining how best to keep your products in compliance. We’ll help you develop compliant quality and manufacturing procedures, policies and systems that best suit your business.

Overview of Cannabis Services

Quality Management Systems

Like any FDA regulated industry, states that allow the production and sale of legalized cannabis products require the products to be manufactured in accordance with sound Quality Management Systems and Good Manufacturing Practices. EAS consultants assist with development of Standard Operating Procedures that offer detailed compliance coverage of requirements such as controls of inventory, production and processes; laboratory operations and specifications for raw materials, in-process materials, and finished products; the management of quality investigations for non-conforming materials and products, assist with product traceability procedures and more.

Audits and Gap Analyses
