New: Cannabis Online Seminars - Cannabis as Medicinal Product and in the Swiss Pilot Trials

The cultivation and processing of cannabis for medicinal purposes and as part of the national pilot trials in Switzerland mandatorily require corresponding licenses from the licensing and supervisory authorities. However, many producers who want to enter this market underestimate the hurdles that these requirements can present. 

In order to provide clarity here and to manage the balancing act between "What is too little and is criticized by the authorities?" and "What is too much and wastes resources unnecessarily?" gempex has decided to offer its know-how in this area, built up in numerous reference projects, in the form of German language online seminars. 

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

The online seminar series conveyes everything you need to know about the topic.
It first 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). 

The seminars are conducted by gempex GMP experts with many years of specific experience and great consulting competence. They build on each other thematically, but can be booked individually. They are repeated at regular intervals. 

The seminar series will start in June 2023.
A total of 8 individual seminars are offered:

1. Licenses and Certifications for GACP, GMP and GDP
What are the legal ways for the handling of cannabis? What is regulated, what is not? What does this mean for my QMS? What costs do I have to expect?

2. Basic Knowledge of GACP
