TORONTO–(BUSINESS WIRE)– MedReleaf is now the first and only medical cannabis producer in Canada to be officially certified an ISO 9001:2008 company, solidifying their position as a leader in quality assurance within the industry. This latest accomplishment is not only a Canadian first, but also a rare achievement in the cannabis production space anywhere in the world.
ISO 9001:2008 is an international standard of requirements for Quality Management System (QMS). The certification can recognize superior levels of quality in both products and services. MedReleaf’s particular accreditation spans multiple disciplines that all meet – or exceed – the stringent standards of the international body that awards the ISO certification.
“There are few other cannabis producers in the world with this accreditation,” said Neil Closner, CEO of MedReleaf. “What’s more, MedReleaf’s ISO covers all major elements of our business including R&D, processing, distribution, and customer service processes.”
MedReleaf’s certification is indeed unique in its abnormally broad scope. “I’m especially proud of our customer-focused results,” said Angelo Fefekos, MedReleaf’s VP of Quality Assurance and Compliance.
MedReleaf has not only demonstrated its commitment to superior products and service, but as part of the audit process has clearly impressed the auditing committee with its plans to even further improve on them. “We have very high standards,” said Fefekos. “And ISO gives us the tools to consistently advance our performance in fundamental areas.”
Each year they will undergo a 3-5 day recertification process wherein it will have to demonstrate the results of this commitment to continual process improvement.
“I’m very proud of our entire team,” said Closner. “From inception, MedReleaf has sought to establish The Medical Grade Standard for the cannabis industry worldwide. This ISO designation confirms that we are not only heading in the right direction, but leading the way.”
