EDMONTON, AB – Aurora Cannabis Inc., a leading global medical cannabis company, has received Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) certification from Australia’s Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) for its Canadian production facilities, River and Ridge. The TGA is responsible for regulating the supply, import, export, manufacturing and advertising of therapeutic goods in Australia.  Obtaining TGA’s GMP certification enables the company to deliver top-tier cannabis products to Australia while confirming Aurora’s dedication to exporting products fully compliant with TGA regulations and the stipulations of TGO 93 (Standard for Medical Cannabis). The license grants approval for Aurora to broaden its product range offerings in the country, comprising dried flower, resin cartridges, pastilles and oils.

“I’m proud to announce Aurora has obtained TGA GMP certification for our world class Canadian production facilities,” said Gorana Lakic, Vice President, Quality at Aurora. “This achievement adds to the number of global certifications Aurora has received and solidifies our dedication to quality and compliance.
