More and more countries around the world legalize cannabis for medical use. But what qualifies as medical grade cannabis? And which aspects have to be considered in particular during Qualification/Validation? The dedicated Post-conference will provide you with the necessary details for medical cannabis products.


Qualification and Validation is an essential GMP requirement. Non-EU suppliers, who currently produce according to GPP, will have to implement EU-GMP standards if they want to supply herbal drugs like medical cannabis to the EU market. But which requirements apply? And what does it mean in practice? The post-conference will specifically answer these questions and provide you with practical examples.

Target Group

The Post-conference specifically addresses Qualification/Validation aspects to consider for Growers, Manufacturers, Start-Ups, Suppliers, Importers, Wholesalers, QPs and QA/QC personnel involved in Cannabis production.
