The standard provides methodology and evaluation criteria to verify ingredient identities and quantities, test criteria for specific contaminants and conformance to GMPs.
NSF conducted extensive plant audits at the TSI plant in Xuzhou City, Jiangsu China to verify TSI's compliance with GMPs. TSI will undergo periodic audits to maintain their GMP registration.
"By receiving both NSF GMP Registration and NSF Ingredient Certification, TSI is demonstrating their commitment to producing the highest quality ingredients," said Ray Jaglowski, Vice President, New Business Development. "I would like to congratulate TSI on their success in the NSF Dietary Supplement Program."
