Note—

See section 27C for additional labelling requirements.

Part 2 Particular conditions for researcher licences

4A researcher, whose licence is subject to a condition prohibiting the researcher from dealing with class A research cannabis plants and seed, must allow an inspector to destroy, or supervise the destruction of, cannabis plants in the possession of the researcher that have been found, by an analyst conducting a laboratory analysis of a random sample of the leaves and flowering heads of the plants, to have a concentration of THC in their leaves and flowering heads of 3% or more.
5A researcher, whose licence is subject to a condition prohibiting the researcher from dealing with class A research cannabis plants and seed, must ensure, as far as practicable, that cannabis seed supplied to the researcher by a person in another State or a foreign country is certified as seed that, if grown, will produce cannabis plants with a THC concentration in their leaves and flowering heads of less than 3%.
6A researcher must carry out activities under the researcher’s licence in accordance with the approved research plan for the licence.

Part 3 Particular conditions for grower licences

7A grower must allow an inspector to destroy, or supervise the destruction of, cannabis plants in the possession of the grower that have been found, by an analyst conducting a laboratory analysis of a random sample of the leaves and flowering heads of the plants, to have a THC concentration in their leaves and flowering heads of more than 1%.

Part 4 Particular conditions for seed handler licences

8A seed handler must—
(a)ensure all industrial cannabis seed in the possession of the seed handler is labelled to state—
(i)if the seed is cannabis seed harvested from an industrial cannabis plant—that fact; or
(ii)if the seed is intended to be used or supplied as planting seed—the required particulars; and

Note—

See section 27C for additional labelling requirements.
