Cannabis for Medical Purposes and in Pilot Trials in Switzerland: Online Seminar "Basic Knowledge of GMP"

The cannabis market seems attractive and there is currently a lot going on in Switzerland. However, in order to be an active player in the business of cannabis for medical purposes, licensing and regulatory approval is essential. 

For licensing by the authorities, it is necessary that cultivation, further processing and trade comply with the regulations. For example, the requirements of GMP - Good Manufacturing Practice GMP - must be anchored in the processes and lived in everyday routine.  

These are the content of the German language online seminar "Basic Knowledge of GMP", which gempex, as an expert in the field of specific Swiss regulatory requirements in the area of cannabis and in the GMP/GACP/GDP regulations, is offering on August 17. The basics of GMP are illuminated, the various sets of rules are presented and differences to other quality management systems are pointed out.

Key content points in the seminar on August 17, 2023 are:

  • Requirements of the authorities 
  • Essential contents of GMP Good Manufacturing Practice
  • Difference between GMP, GACP and ISO 9001

Addressed are all those involved in the cultivation, processing, extraction, isolation, packaging, dispensing and/or import and export of cannabis products in Switzerland.

Cannabis Seminar Series

A new gempex online seminar series is dedicated to the topic of "Cannabis as Medicinal Product and in the Swiss pilot trial".
The online seminar series teaches (in German language) everything you need to know about the topic.

First, it provides an in-depth insight into the legal requirements and relevant regulations for cultivation and processing, highlights the minimum requirements for GACP/GMP/GDP-compliant quality management systems, and shows pragmatic ways to implement them. The important GMP topics of qualification and validation are then covered in greater depth in separate seminars, as are, for example, the ideal procedure for establishing a new production facility or GDP-compliant logistics (including import and export).

A total of 8 individual seminars are offered.

An overview of all seminar topics is provided on cannabis-online-seminars .
