AgMedica’s Chatham operation recently received current Good Manufacturing Practice certification.
Internationally recognized firm SGS, a leading global inspection, verification, testing and certification company with more than 130 years of experience, carried out an independent third-party inspection of the AgMedica processes and facilities against both EU and Health Canada regulations for cGMP requirements, AgMedica officials said.
SGS has certified that the cultivation, processing and sale of cannabis products by AgMedica met the stringent cGMP requirements of both the EU and Canada.
The company successfully achieved this certification only one year after Health Canada granted AgMedica its first licence to cultivate cannabis in December of 2017 and it became a licensed producer.
To date, no other licensed producer has received EU-GMP or Canadian-GMP certification as quickly as AgMedica following receipt of the original Health Canada licence.
