A “readiness program” is a complete set of customized policies and procedures which are customized to our client’s operation, building on the foundation of the Quality Management System.
Readiness programs are designed to prepare a facility for real-world operations ahead of “switching on the lights”. It is common for our readiness programs to cover the following:
- Documentation procedures
- Production-related procedures
- Quality assurance procedures
- Quality control procedures
- Sanitation procedures
- Record-keeping procedures
- Security procedures
- Equipment maintenance-related procedures
- Material handling procedures
- Post-licence obligations by the Licensee
- Material/genetic sourcing
The journey of obtaining a federal licence starts with an application and a foundation of procedures/practices which Health Canada reviews on principle. The real work around becoming operationally ready involves customizing and fine-tuning these to a specific facility that has been fully built out and preparing to operate. Throughout the application stages, our clients’ plans often change, but once their facility is completed and their initial team is hired, a readiness program takes their business from concept to reality.
