Technically, anyone can write SOPs as long as they have knowledge and experience related to the industry. Cannabis SOPs are often developed by the retail operation’s management team who are responsible for quality control and assurance or industry consultants. These individuals prepare SOPs, which are then presented to senior officials who can review, approve, and sign off on them. When new SOPs are drafted or if SOPs need to be revised, they must be reviewed before being implemented. It’s important to track revisions of various procedures in dispensary records.
