NSF Announces Eleven New Dietary Supplement GMP Registrations

Sixty-five Supplement Manufacturing Facilities Now Registered by NSF

Ann Arbor, MI – NSF International today announced that eleven new facilities have received Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) Registration in the first quarter of 2007 bringing the total number of NSF GMP Registered facilities to sixty-five.

GMPs are outlined in NSF/ANSI 173 - the only American National Standard for dietary supplements. NSF is also fully accredited by ANSI to test and certify dietary supplements within its in-house laboratories.

“These new facility registrations demonstrate the increasing awareness and value of NSF’s dietary supplement certification programs,” said Kristen Holt, senior vice president of NSF’s Dietary Supplement and Food Safety Programs. “Taking a proactive approach to comply with the upcoming GMP guidelines speaks highly of any manufacturer and their initiative to produce quality products."

NSF’s GMP Registration Program independently registers manufacturers of dietary supplements and functional foods that demonstrate compliance with all GMP requirements. GMP requirements include:

  • personnel training,
  • plant and ground maintenance and sanitation,
  • equipment design and maintenance,
  • quality assurance procedures,
  • production and process controls,
  • testing and stability records.

Manufacturers seeking NSF GMP for Sport™ registration must meet additional requirements for laboratory operations, sourcing and traceability to verify that athletic banned substances are not present, stored or manufactured at the facility.

Simply conducting a one-time inspection of a facility does not ensure that products will continue to meet quality criteria on an ongoing basis. Under NSF’s GMP Registration Program, companies are audited twice annually to ensure that they continue to meet the latest regulatory requirements. NSF’s GMP auditors, located worldwide, have over 300 years of combined experience in auditing and quality control.

NSF congratulates the following companies on achieving this high standard for their recently registered facilities:
