Program Overview

Many European countries have legalized or decriminalized the medical use of cannabis up to a certain extent. However, there is an unavoidable need for the cannabis industry to implement strict regulatory controls on the production of cannabis products. Hence, Licensed Producers must implement GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) in the cannabis sector. The desire for a global cannabis trade will drive the regulatory compliance alignment to GMP in the future.

Through the Cannabis good manufacturing practices (GMP) training, you will learn and understand the components of Eu-GMP and its applications in the cannabis industry, the importance of GMP in the production, storage and testing of cannabis, and the Quality Management Systems (QMS).

Attendees may interact with the class and lead trainers for more clarifications or concerns.
