Fire, shock, high pressures and flammable solvents released during processing create hazardous conditions during legal cannabis extraction. To prevent accidents, it is important to mitigate these hazards for extractors, booths and post-processing equipment. Achieving certification to UL 1389, the Standard for Plant Oil Extraction Equipment for Installation and Use in Ordinary (Unclassified) Locations and Hazardous (Classified) Locations empowers manufacturers with a consistent set of criteria for the design and production of new processing equipment that helps them avoid delays in the building permit process. This on-demand webinar will discuss certification of legal cannabis extraction systems, post-processing equipment and booths, and changes to the 2021 National Fire Protection Association 1 and International Fire Code that reference certification to UL 1389.
