All American Pharmaceutical (AAP) announced that its Billings manufacturing facility is now a GMP registered facility by NSF International. The official designations, NSF GMP registration and NSF GMP for Sport registration, verify that AAP complies to FDA-recommended current good manufacturing practices (cGMPs) when producing dietary and sports supplements. “NSF GMP registration is just the latest check and balance in our quality assurance program,” explains Doug Hardy, AAP president. “We feel the only way to maintain superior quality and contaminant-free manufacturing is to constantly challenge our methods. And we want our customers to feel confident that the label on their product represents exactly what’s in the package.”
The independent, third-party quality audit conducted by NSF International verifies that AAP is in compliance with Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) consistent with the guidelines for the manufacture of dietary supplements set out by the FDA in the June 2007 Code of Federal Regulations Title 21. GMPs are guidelines implemented through a system of processes, procedures, and documentation that provide a quality-based structure to the manufacturing process, so products have the identity, strength, composition, quality, and purity that they are represented to possess.
NSF GMP for Sport
The purpose of this additional NSF registration is to verify that the AAP Billings manufacturing facility does not manufacture, warehouse, distribute or process any substances banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency. “We want sports supplement manufacturers using our contract manufacturing services to feel confident that our facilities comply to GMPs and are free of banned substances,” says Hardy. “That’s why we took the extra step of earning NSF GMP for Sport registration.”
