Compliance and enforcement report: Cannabis inspection data summary (fiscal year 2018-2019)

Table of contents

Background

On October 17, 2018, the Cannabis Act and the Cannabis Regulations came into force. The Cannabis Act establishes a national framework to strictly regulate and restrict access to cannabis in Canada, outside of which cannabis continues to be a prohibited substance under criminal law power. Under the Cannabis Act, federal, provincial and territorial governments share responsibility for overseeing cannabis activities including:

The purpose of the Cannabis Act is to protect public health and public safety, including providing for the legal production of cannabis to reduce illegal activities in relation to cannabis and providing access to a quality-controlled supply of cannabis. Health Canada is responsible for conducting compliance and enforcement activities under the Cannabis Act and the Cannabis Regulations.

Health Canada manages risks posed to public health and public safety in connection with cannabis through a variety of compliance and enforcement activities including compliance promotion, compliance monitoring and enforcement actions.

Compliance and enforcement activities include conducting inspections of both:

Inspections may involve actions such as:

Regulated parties must take corrective actions during or after the inspection to address any noted deficiencies or deviations from the legislative or regulatory requirements.

The Cannabis Act contains a number of enforcement tools that may be considered in determining the appropriate actions to prevent or address non-compliance, based on a review of the situation and all relevant information, including the health or safety risk and the compliance history of the individual or corporation. These include measures ranging from compliance promotion and awareness, which are intended to educate and prevent non-compliance, up to measures intended to correct non-compliance or address a public health or safety risk, such as the issuance of a warning letter, suspension or cancellation of a federal licence, the issuance of a ministerial order, or the issuance of administrative monetary penalties (up to $1 million). For more information, see the Compliance and Enforcement Policy for the Cannabis Act.

This summary includes results for cannabis inspections from April 1, 2018 to March 31, 2019.

Definitions of observations

An observation is a deficiency or deviation from legislative or regulatory requirements that is:

An observation is classified by the following types:

Critical observations

A critical observation represents the most serious deviation or deficiency of the CA or CR. Critical observations are those that are likely to:

Major observations

A major observation describes a situation that may result in a risk to public health or public safety, or may involve fraud, or may increase the risk of diversion, prevent the detection of diversion or health risk.

Minor observations

A minor observation describes a situation that is neither critical nor major, but is a deviation or deficiency from the CA or CR. Minor observations will likely not increase the risk of diversion, prevent the detection of diversion and/or health risk.

No classification

Pre-sales inspections (April 1 - October 16, 2018) assessed the licensed producer's readiness to conduct sale activity outlined within an application. Therefore, observations are not classified for these inspections.

Advertising and Promotions inspections support the assessment of compliance for promotion and advertisement activities and the associated requirements, by gathering information. Observations are not made for these inspections.

Registered personal and designated production of cannabis for medical purposes cannabis inspections assessed for any deficiency or deviation from legislative or regulatory requirements. Observations are made but are not classified for these inspections.

For more information, consult the Inspection results section.

Inspection ratings

An inspection can be assigned a compliant or non-compliant rating, based on the number and severity of observations noted during an inspection.

Compliant rating

A compliant inspection rating means that, at the time of the inspection, the licence holder has met the applicable legislative and regulatory requirements and is in control of the regulated activities.

A compliant inspection rating may be assigned even when observations are present.

Non-compliant rating

A non-compliant inspection rating means that, at the time of the inspection, the licence holder has not met the applicable legislative and regulatory requirements, and may not be fully in control of the regulated activities.

No rating

Pre-Sales inspections conducted from April 1, 2018 to October 16, 2018, are not assigned an inspection rating since they are conducted to assess the licensed producer's readiness to conduct sale activity outlined within an application. Registered personal and designated production of cannabis for medical purposes inspections, were not assigned inspection ratings since observations were not classified.

Advertising and Promotions inspections are not assigned ratings since observations are not made. The purpose is to support the assessment of compliance for promotion and advertisement activities and the associated requirements by gathering information.

An inspection rating was assigned to 98 of 156 inspections conducted between April 1, 2018 and October 16, 2018 under the CDSA and the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations.
