Good Manufacturing Practices

  • Good Manufacturing Processes (GMP) is a system for ensuring that products are consistently produced according to quality standards.
  • Good manufacturing practices help a manufacturer better recognize, investigate, and take appropriate planned action to protect the consumer and marketplace from exposure to any potentially harmful ingredients or practices
  • GMP is the proactive part of quality assurance. It is designed to minimize the risks involved in all steps of the manufacturing process.
  • A basic tenant of GMP is that quality cannot be tested into a product. It must be built into each batch of product during all stages of the manufacturing process.
