In order to export medical marijuana to another country, an export permit is required by Health Canada. The export application process will have to include proof that the export is authorized by the laws of the receiving country. The exporting country may request a GPP certificate of compliance.
In order to apply for an export permit, the exporting facility must first have a licence to produce under the Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations. Export permits are shipment-specific. It is required to include proof that the export is authorized by the laws of the receiving country as part of the export application process. The holder of an export permit must also provide the Minister just prior to export with a declaration. The declaration will include details of the shipment and must contain a copy of the import permit issued by the competent authority in the country of final destination.
The country of final destination may request a certificate of GPP compliance. GPP in the medical marijuana industry is equivalent to GMP in the pharmaceutical industry.
NHP Consulting can provide a GPP certificate after an on-site audit of your facility against the Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations. The GPP certificate is signed by a competent NHP Consulting auditor and can be notarized upon request.
