The Cannabis Safety & Quality (CSQ) Standards were launched in 2020 to promote industry best practices and improve the overall safety and quality of cannabis and cannabis-infused products in the market. 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. Sites who achieve the CSQ certification will prove to their customers that they are fully committed to supplying only the safest and highest quality products on the market.
Our vision is to become the cannabis industry’s most trusted source for safety and quality certification.
