Chief Compliance Officer Program
for Cannabis Organizations
Chief Compliance Officer (CCO)
The CCO is responsible for overseeing compliance within an organization, and ensuring compliance with regulatory code requirements, laws, policies and procedures. The CCO is responsible for establishing standards and implementing procedures for compliance programs to ensure effectiveness and efficiency. Responsibilities include:
Identifying, preventing, detecting and correcting non-compliance items
Developing and executing an annual compliance work plan
Reporting to senior management on program effectiveness
Overseeing, monitoring and developing policies and program reviews
Challenges for the Chief Compliance Officer
For cannabis operators, the role is not clearly or properly defined…
Multiple regulatory code sets from disparate agencies
Multiple agencies at Federal, State, County and City levels
There are no effective monitoring and reporting policies and procedures in place…
Many organizations start from scratch, or a broken model/framework
Difficult to know what applies, what doesn’t and who to ask for help
The CCO does not have the finances or human resources to do the job…
Implementing a new program is complex, time-consuming and expensive
Resources must know regulatory code and inspection process
