Under Cannabis Act, federal license holders, provincially and territorially authorized distributors and retailers in Canada must complete and submit Cannabis Reporting Form monthly to Health Canada. This is to control and regulate its production, distribution and sale preventing illegal inversion and diversion of cannabis.
Accuracy as well as timely submission of monthly reports is necessary as non-compliance and questionable data could lead to enforcement action from Health Canada.
Medicine storage auditing
Distributors, importers, wholesalers, and all involved in the storage of drugs for human use, veterinary use, clinical trials, and sample drugs to professionals must comply with Canada’s Food and Drugs Act. Proper storage conditions must be maintained, and environmental controls are essential.
Drugs must be stored based on labelled storage condition. Temperature excursions or the risk of exposure to temperatures outside the labelled storage conditions must be reduced hence tracking and auditing climate is a priority.
Medicine transportation auditing
Transportation of drugs whether for human or animal use must comply with Canada’s Food and Drugs Act. Ensuring that transportation conditions are met throughout the supply chain by all individuals and/or companies involved in the process is a top requirement.
In product transportation environmental conditions such as temperature, relative humidity and lighting must be maintained within an acceptable range as described by the approved labelling. Temperature monitoring devices can be immensely helpful to keep track of ongoing climate.
