The “European Industrial Hemp Association (EIHA)” officially founded on 23 November 2005 was taken up in the registry of associations of the County Court Brühl (Germany) under the number “VR 1397”.

Therefore the more than five years old status of a totally informal association which had been founded on 14 September 2000 in Wolfsburg was brought to an end and converted into an official association.
