D37 Cannabis

    About the Event

    The hemp and cannabis industry is rapidly evolving globally, which encompasses everything from building materials, textiles, semiconductors to nutritional, dietary and pharmaceutical goods. As these bourgeoning industries emerge, various aspects of the market have common challenges and learned experiences from which all industry can benefit. From seed to sale, standards will play a critical role to ensure safety, efficiency and quality. ASTM International technical committee D37 on Cannabis is hosting a free technical workshop where you can engage with other industry experts, with presentations and interactive working scenarios, to better leverage the collective knowledge of your peers. Topics include:

    • Agricultural and horticulture standardisation
    • Quality management systems in cultivation, processing, testing and distribution
    • Laboratory methods for detection and extraction of oils, contaminants and more
    • Processing and handling of raw materials and products
    • Security and compliance

    The workshop intends to cover market needs, policy drivers, and compliance considerations. At the same time, attendees will learn about ASTM International, the drivers behind the initiation of D37 and the future of standards for all international players. Each presentation session will be concluded by panel discussions with experts in industry about the obstacles they face and what they are aiming to accomplish for industry.
