What is dietary supplement certification?November 21, 2014
Supplement certification involves verifying the integrity and quality of dietary supplement products, ingredients, and the processes and procedures involved in processing or holding them. Some programs, like our BSCG Certified Drug Free® program, focus on protection against the risk of contamination with drugs that could be banned in sport or harmful. Other programs, like our BSCG Certified Quality™ program, focus on label verification and contaminant testing and product quality and integrity. The last type of supplement certification focuses on compliance with the process and procedures laid out in 21 CFR 111 Current Good Manufacturing Practice to ensure that the facilities involved in producing or handling supplement products or ingredients are in compliance, and is offered through our BSCG Certified GMP™ program.
