Licensing and Regulatory Affairs
(1) A safety compliance facility shall test samples as provided in the act, the Michigan medical marihuana act, and these rules.
(2) To ensure the safety, security, and integrity of the operation of marihuana facilities, a safety compliance facility shall collect the samples of marihuana product from another marihuana facility as follows:
(a) The safety compliance facility shall physically collect samples of marihuana product from another marihuana facility to be tested at the safety compliance facility. The safety compliance facility shall ensure the samples of marihuana product are placed in secured, sealed containers that bear the labeling information as required under these rules.
(b) The safety compliance facility shall collect a sample size sufficient to complete all analyses required but the sample shall in no case be less than 0.5% of the weight of the batch (9.1 gram minimum). The maximum batch size should be 10 pounds. The department may publish recommendations for this subdivision based on the type of marihuana product being tested.
(c) When a testing sample is collected from a marihuana facility for testing in the statewide monitoring system, that marihuana facility must quarantine the marihuana product that is undergoing the testing from any other marihuana product at the marihuana facility. The marihuana facility shall indicate the sample being tested in the statewide monitoring system. The quarantined marihuana product must not be transferred or sold until testing results pass as provided under these rules.
(d) Any marihuana product that a safety compliance facility collects for testing from a licensee under this rule must not be transferred or sold to any other marihuana facility other than the licensee from whom the sample was collected.
(e) A safety compliance facility may request additional sample material from the same licensee where the sample was collected from for the purposes of completing the required quality assurance tests as long as the requirements of this rule are met.
(f) A safety compliance facility or its authorized employee shall be physically present when collecting the samples of marihuana product for testing.
