 MMPR Section 11 Record Keeping Advice

When submitting an application to Health Canada to become a Licensed Producer, MMPR Section 11 Record Keeping of the Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (MMPR) is incredibly important. Health Canada requirements for Record Keeping can be very complex to those without prior experience in this specific industry. It is a section under high scrutiny that Health Canada uses to identify deficiencies in applicants. Below are a few areas outside of the norm that Health Canada is looking for in your record keeping solution. Follow these to avoid requests for more information and deficiency letters.

Recording of Seed Weight

Your MMPR Section 11 Record Keeping solution must be able to record seed weight. This is only if you plan on germinating marihuana from seed. Most starting material is germinated from seed unless you have a relationship with a current Licensed Producer to get clones as your starting material.

Retention Sample Records

Your MMPR Record Keeping solution should record and store a retention sample tested by a third party independent laboratory for at least two years if not longer.

Stored Documentation

Your solution must be able to store documents. Including Lot Summaries, Notices to Local Authorities, Complaints, Lab Results, Destruction Documents and much more. Make sure your Record Keeping solution can store and upload documents in a centralized location. Keep in mind most retention requirements of records are for a minimum of two years, if not more.


The MMPR requires that all orders arrive via mail or courier, as opposed to having storefronts. Therefore your MMPR Record Keeping solution should allow for integration with e-commerce software with open APIs like Shopify or WordPress.

Health Canada is looking for screenshots, technical documentation, and footnotes as to how the Record Keeping solution complies with all Health Canada requirements. If ever unsure about anything in the permit acquisition process seek outside help from an accredited consulting expert within the industry. For more information, please visit

    Good day! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa?
    My site addresses a lot of the same topics as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you happen to be interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Awesome blog by the way!
