WHAT IS cGMP?
Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) 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. 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 cGMP 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.
