Mohammad Khalid, PhD, President of Pro-X Nutraceuticals, has announced that the contract and private label manufacturer has obtained Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) Certification from the Natural Products Association (NPA) for the dietary supplement industry.
The NPA established the Third-Party Certification Program to support dietary supplement manufacturers in evaluating their compliance with the regulations set forth by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to govern the industry. The regulations detail how manufacturing processes are defined and controlled and any changes to the process are evaluated. The NPA GMP standards are in-line with the FDA’s GMP guidelines established under regulation 21 CFR 111.
In compliance with the latest GMP regulations governing the industry, Pro-X earned the certification through an independent audit by NPA, a non-profit organization that represents retailers, manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors of natural products. The company earned an “A” compliance rating from the NPA.
Pro-X Nutraceuticals began the Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) Certification process with the NPA approximately one year ago. During that time, the company invested approximately $1.5 million into appropriate facility upgrades including an in-house, state-of-the-art analytical testing lab.
“We decided to seek the GMP Certification through the NPA because we felt that its certification program was the most valuable in the dietary supplement manufacturing industry,” said Dr. Khalid. “The GMP audit itself took about three full days for the inspector to investigate our testing and manufacturing procedures, batch records, specifications, and the entire facility. This process was very enlightening and we knew it was an investment in our long-term future, and for the health and well-being of our clients and their consumers.”
Dr. Khalid added that the NPA’s GMP certification signifies that Pro-X Nutraceuticals has met the GMP standards which are designed to assure dietary supplement product integrity and quality.
