WHAT IS GMP/cGMP?
Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) are minimum requirements to ensure that products are created in a manner that ensures they are of consistent quality and safe for their intended use. If a product is found to be produced in a facility that does not meet GMPs, they can be considered adulterated and unsafe. In the U.S., the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) regulates the manufacture and sale of food and beverages, dietary supplements, pharmaceutical products, and cosmetics by requiring adherence to GMPs. The “c” in cGMP stands for current, meaning that how companies conform to GMPs must continually evolve with the development of new scientific research and industry best practices.
WHY IS GMP SO IMPORTANT?
cGMPs are important to ensure manufacturers are producing safe products. A site that is not following the minimum requirements for cGMPs is putting the basic well-being of consumers around the world at risk.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF RECEIVING A THIRD-PARTY CGMP AUDIT
Besides meeting regulatory and customer requirements, there are numerous other benefits to receiving a cGMP audit. Some of these benefits include the following:
- Reduction in failed product testing
- Improvement of product safety
- Improvement of product quality and consistency
- Eliminating potential risks and possible recalls
- Marketing advantages over competitors who are not audited by a third-party
- Improvement to consumer confidence and an increase in brand loyalty
