Compliance inspections may be minimal with everything going on with COVID-19, but rest assured that cannabis inspections will ramp up once restrictions are lifted. Let’s talk about how to prepare your clients for inspections:
- Review your client’s compliance binder and update it, if necessary. Make sure any COVID-19 SOP changes are included, and double check whether said changes need to be disclosed to regulators. Double check your jurisdiction’s disciplinary guidelines to make sure all your bases are covered.
- Perform mock inspections. Put yourself in an inspector’s shoes and conduct a mock inspection, including a walk through of the licensed premises. Inspectors commonly utilize checklists when performing inspections. Reach out to the entity that issued your license and ask if you can get your hands on one.
- Be prepared. Chances are, your clients will have to handle an inspection on their own. Make sure all documentation required by your jurisdiction is organized and easily accessible to your client so that it isn’t a mad scramble when an inspector shows up.
