NSF Dietary Supplement Testing and Certification Program; GMP Training: NSF International developed the American National Standard for Dietary Supplements (NSF/ANSI Standard 173) and tests and certifies products to this standard. The NSF Certification process includes: a toxicology and label review to verify product formulation and marketing claims, a formulation review to identify and quantify dietary ingredients declared on product label, a contaminant review, which involves testing to ensure the product contains no undeclared ingredients or unsafe levels of contaminants and a Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) inspection/audit of the manufacturing facility. NSF also offers GMP training courses through NSF-DBA, an NSF International company.
