What you need to know
The CSQ Certification Program and applicable standards were built around both the ISO/IEC 17067 and the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) Benchmarking requirements. Each standard has been developed by industry professionals and stakeholders to meet industry, customers, and regulatory requirements from seed-to-sale.
Getting certified with ASI
ASI is one of the Certification Bodies for CSQ. The standards currently available include:
- Growing and Cultivation of Cannabis Plants
- Manufacturing and Extraction of Cannabis
- Manufacturing and Infusion of Cannabis into Food & Beverage Products
- Manufacturing of Cannabis Dietary Supplements
For small-medium cannabis businesses that don't have a robust safety & quality system in place, CSQ offers lower level audits as stepping stones to accredited certification. This includes: cGMP, cGAP, cGMP+, and cGAP+ audits.
Sites who achieve the CSQ certification will prove to their buyers, retailers, and customers that they are fully committed to supplying only the safest and highest quality products on the market.
