Medical & Legalized Recreational Cannabis Accreditation (CAN-9009:2013)
Cannot Be Compared To Generic ANAB-ANSI Certifications
For the Medical or Legalized Recreational Cannabis business, whether it be growing, storing, subcontracting, testing, security, or distribution, quality is absolutely essential to keep consumers safe from migration of poor quality substitutes into the supply chain. All manufacturers, suppliers and subcontractors involved in growing, storing, subcontracting, testing, security, distribution for the medical and legalized cannabis industry must be accredited to CAN-9009:2013 standards. The Industrial Leaders Group (ILG), a leading independent accreditation body for quality
assurance for nearly a decade for the manufacturing sector, is the only independent, tax-paying company with this specific designation of quality medical and legalized recreational cannabis certification. To obtain this unique accreditation requires specialized audits against specific CAN-9009:2013 requirement quality metrics. It’s important to note CAN-9009:2013 is a system accreditation against quality metrics and its focus is exclusively on the system.
CAN-9009:2013 Certification Requirements
Due to the secure nature of materials, manufacturing processes, and security, the CAN-9009:2013 accreditation and registration program demands that company’s seeking this certification is required to safeguard and not to release any documentation relating to the standard, since any information about the process or the products could compromise the safety and integrity of the products and services being rendered by the consumer. CAN-9009:2013 system accreditation is a non-negotiable requirement for growing, storing, subcontracting, testing, security, and distribution of cannabis materials, production equipment and services in the United States, all of which is subject to local, state and national laws. To ensure the strictest quality standards are thoroughly and consistently practiced by the certified company, CAN-9009:2013 certification/accreditation is solely administered by certification bodies overseen by (ILG) Industrial Leaders Group.

Unlike the generic ISO 9001:2008 certificate, it’s important to note that CAN-9009:2013 audits are system-specific and precisely comprehensive to the Medical Cannabis and Legalized Recreational Cannabis industry. Therefore, this should not be in anyway confused with ISO, AS, TS designations or any other ANAB/ANSI requirements, since the Medical and Legalized Recreational Cannabis certification is a system specific, standalone standard, and accredited as such. CAN-9009:2013 cannot be compared to a generic standard such as ISO 9001:2008 which because of its non-specialized quality standards has been shown to be significantly inferior to the highly specialized CAN 9009:2013 certification. Companies in the Medical Cannabis and Legalized Recreational Cannabis business may be ISO, AS, TS certified and maintain such, but, due to the intrinsic nature of the industry, CAN-9009:2013 certification/registration is the supreme controlling requirement and standard, and benchmark for the Medical and Legalized Recreational Marijuana industry.
