    Theresa (Tess) Espejo is a Senior Representative, Standards Programs with ULC Standards. For more than 16 years, she has managed the work of various standards technical committees, including the ULC Technical Committees on Cannabis, Fire Alarm and Life Safety, Security and Burglar Alarm Systems, UL/ULC Joint Technical Committees, and IEC/ISO mirror committees.

    SYNOPSIS:

    In October 2018, Canada became the first country to federally legalize adult access to recreational cannabis. This has rendered Canada a unique opportunity to create an operating landscape to govern a new industry that could become the model for other governments looking to do the same. However, the entire supply chain and distribution of cannabis is severely lacking in standards. In 2017, ULC Standards was approached by various federal and provincial entities to take a leadership role in developing standards and verification services to serve the industry. We started to address the urgent need for standards by developing the proposed 1st edition CAN/ULC-S4400, Standard for the Safety of Premises, Buildings and Equipment Utilized for the Cultivation, Production and Processing of Cannabis. This landmark standard and future regulatory instrument is intended to assist designers, property owners, engineers and regulators set the baseline in ensuring the safety and security of the cannabis premises, buildings and processing. The presentation by the Project Manager of the standard, Tess Espejo, will provide a brief history of this standard initiative, a description of the main features of the standard and future plans and initiatives.
