Avoid having your Cannabis License Revoked or Suspended for Failure to submit Standard Operating Procedures that Comply with Amended 10/21 Cannabis Regulations.

A standard operating procedure or SOP is a set of step-by-step instructions required by the cannabis regulations to help cannabis businesses develop their unique business plan in order to carry out complex routine operations required for their license type.

Standard operating procedures aim to achieve efficiency, quality output and uniformity of performance, while reducing miscommunication and failure to comply with cannabis regulations.

A recent California law authorizes the issuing licensing authority, Bureau Cannabis Control (All licenses except for Cultivation and Manufacturing) Department of Food & Agriculture (Cultivation) and Department of Health (Manufacturing) in its sole discretion, to revoke or suspend a provisional license if the licensing authority determines the licensee failed to actively and diligently pursue requirements for an annual license.

When you apply for a cannabis business license, the amended 10/21 Regulations require Standard Operating Procedures for the type of cannabis license you want to have.

What to Do?

Contact our office to provide your business name and type of cannabis license being applied for.  Our office will then prepare the required Standard Operating Procedures for your specific license type - Except for testing laboratories, which need to be prepared by a laboratory professional.

Standard Operating Procedures are a major factor in your license application being approved and the key to making sure your cannabis business is operating correctly.
