Common benefits for cannabis operations expected to include improved efficiency, cost savings and a higher level of customer service

Beleave Inc. reports its wholly owned subsidiary, Beleave Kannabis Corporation, has obtained ISO 9001:2015 certification for the research, development, and production of cannabis products for medicinal and recreational purposes at its Hamilton, Ont. facility.

ISO 9001:2015—a quality management system standard developed by the International Organization for Standardization—is “the most up-to-date standard of its kind and contains key updates, including an emphasis on risk-based thinking to enhance the application of the process approach, improved applicability for services, and increased leadership requirements,” notes a press release from Beleave.

“Common benefits of being certified reported by the ISO include improved efficiency, cost savings and a higher level of customer service,” reports the Canadian cannabis company that cultivates high-quality cannabis flower, oil and extracts.

“After many months of hard work and preparation, we are extremely proud to be one of the few licensed producers of cannabis to have received ISO 9001:2015 accreditation,” comments Roger Ferreira, chief science officer for Beleave. “This internationally recognized certification for our quality management system positions us well as we continue to develop international partnerships and plan to enter global markets,” Ferreira adds.
