BSCG Certified GMP™ Program
Certification and Compliance for Dietary Supplement Good Manufacturing Practices
In addition to industry leading drug-testing protection through BSCG Certified Drug Free® and quality specification verification through BSCG Certified Quality™, we offer the BSCG Certified GMP™ program. BSCG Certified GMP™ provides gold-standard GMP certification and compliance audits for dietary supplements and natural products. To certify a dietary supplement or natural products company’s product, we conduct on-site, third-party audits of its manufacturing or holding facilities to evaluate compliance with Title 21 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 111, Current Good Manufacturing Practice in Manufacturing, Packaging, Labeling, or Holding Operations for Dietary Supplements – (21 CFR 111, or GMP).
GMP requirements are a set of guidelines that attempt to provide consistency in the manufacturing process of various products. While most supplement and natural products facilities do their best to comply with GMP regulations, only GMP certification and compliance audits from a competent, third-party provider can ensure GMP compliance. The trusted BSCG Certified GMP™ program provides assurance not only to the facilities but also to the end consumer who can verify that a product or ingredient complies with GMP by looking for our BSCG Certified GMP™ seal.
As with our other programs, the BSCG Certified GMP™ program can be be used to establish GMP certification and compliance of finished products, raw materials / ingredients, or facilities. When certifying products or ingredients, the facilities involved in production and holding are audited in order for the product or ingredient to carry the BSCG Certified GMP™ seal. Facilities can also be audited directly to showcase GMP compliance to supplement and natural product clientele.
We follow the approach used by groups like the U.S. FDA (Food & Drug Administration), UL / NPA, NSF ANSI 173, AHPA, or US Pharmacopeia. Our highly developed GMP certification for dietary supplements and natural products goes above and beyond the audit process by providing support on standard operating procedure development and refinement, audit response preparation, GMP quality control audit training, and more. The BSCG Certified GMP™ program requires audits every two years and provides corrective action reports and solutions to facilitate compliance if deficiencies are identified.
Look for the BSCG Certified GMP™ seal to find dietary supplements and natural products or raw materials that are in compliance with GMP requirements.
