The Cannabis Authenticity and Purity Standard (CAPS) Auditor certification has officially launched been for global applications. The certification provides credentials to auditors seeking to provide audit services against the CAPS requirements, published by Purity-IQ.
"The certification is a globally portable credential that recognizes the knowledge, skills, and attributes of audit professionals who have demonstrated their competencies and capabilities to the certification requirements. Businesses delivering product against the CAPS requirements can have confidence that audit personnel have the requisite skills to assess and certify their business practices," the Purity-IQ team stated.
The CAPS personnel certification now also provides credentialling to auditors who wish to expand their activities to include a Technical Reviewer designation. CAPS certification is also expanding to cover consultants, who wish to develop business management practices for their clients who may also wish to meet the requirements of CAPS.
“We are proud to form this long-term relationship with PCAA, which will now provide the necessary assurances that our approved third-party auditors and consultants have been trained, assessed, and certified to conduct CAPS audits, implementation, and training services, for our valued customers,” states Paul Valder, cofounder of Purity-IQ and Chief Technical Officer for the Cannabis Authenticity and Purity Standard.
The CAPS professional certifications are the result of a collaboration between Holtmann Professional Services (HPS) who provided the development of certification competencies, Purity-IQ, who provided the technical and industry expertise, and PCAA World who facilitated the certification platform.
