An international workshop agreement is a document developed outside the normal ISO committee system to allow market participants to negotiate in an “open workshop”. International workshop contracts are usually supported administratively by a member body. The published agreement refers to the relevant organisations involved in their development. An international workshop agreement has a maximum lifespan of six years, after which it can be converted into another ISO result or is automatically withdrawn. The registration deadline is Wednesday, September 30, 2020. Please inform the National Standards Organization (ANS) that you have registered for this workshop. A technical specification relates to work that is still under technical development or that assumes that there will be a future, but not immediate, possibility of reaching agreement on an international standard. A technical specification is published for immediate use, but also offers the possibility of obtaining feedback. The goal is for it to finally be transformed and re-elected as an international standard. Demand for medical and recreational cannabis is growing with a projected value of up to $103.9 billion by 2024.
