Besieged Canadian cannabis grower CannTrust was notified that a facility was recently deemed noncompliant with a host of federal cannabis regulations – the second significant breach at its facilities in just over a month. The company said it accepted Health Canada’s findings, which were delivered after markets closed Friday. Heath Canada’s July 10-16 inspection of the Vaughan, Ontario, facility found: Five rooms were converted to storage areas without prior regulator approval. Two new areas were constructed without approval of Health Canada, one of which was used to store cannabis since November. The manufacturing facility had insufficient security and quality-assurance controls. Standard operating procedures did not meet minimum requirements. Documents or information were not retained to enable the regulator to complete its audit in a timely manner. CannTrust’s stock has been in a tailspin on the Toronto and New York stock exchanges since a whistleblower alerted Health Canada to unlicensed cultivation at its greenhouse in Pelham, Ontario, over a month ago. The company’s shares fell more than 30% in the wake of those revelations. CannTrust’s shares have fallen another 30% this week after the company disclosed the latest breach. The federal regulator is still determining the appropriate compliance and enforcement action for the Pelham, Ontario, regulatory violations. Health Canada advised the company it could not provide any guidance about the timing of that decision, CannTrust said in a news release. In the past month, the company halted all adult-use and medical sales, fired its senior leadership, and faces a probe by securities regulators and police. CannTrust also hired a financial adviser to review “strategic alternatives,” including a possible sale of the company.
被围困的加拿大大麻种植者 CannTrust 被告知,一家设施最近被认为不符合一系列联邦大麻法规,这是该设施在一个多月内第二次重大违规。 该公司表示,它接受了加拿大卫生部( Health Canada )的调查结果,这些结果是在周五股市收盘后发布的。 加拿大卫生部7月10日至16日在安大略省沃恩市的设施检查中发现: 五间客房未经监管机构事先批准,被改造成储藏室。 在未经加拿大卫生部批准的情况下新建了两个地区,其中一个地区自11月以来用来储存大麻。 生产设施没有足够的安全和质量保证控制。 标准操作程序不符合最低要求。 没有保留文件或资料,以使监管机构能够及时完成其审计工作。 佳能信托的股票在多伦多和纽约证券交易所一直处于尾盘状态,一位告密者在一个多月前提醒加拿大卫生部不要在其位于安大略省佩勒姆( Pelham )的温室里种植作物。这些消息公布后,该公司股价下跌了30%以上。 佳能信托的股价本周又下跌了30%,此前该公司披露了最新的违约情况。 联邦监管机构仍在决定对安大略省佩勒姆的违规行为采取适当的合规和执法行动。 CannTrust 在一份新闻稿中表示,加拿大卫生部建议该公司不能就该决定的时机提供任何指导。 过去一个月,该公司停止了所有成人使用和医疗销售,解雇了其高级领导层,并面临证券监管机构和警方的调查。 佳能信托还聘请了一名财务顾问,负责审查“战略替代方案”,包括可能出售该公司。
