BSN® (www.bsnonline.net), a global leader in sports nutrition, has announced that the company has successfully completed a third-party Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) distribution facility audit from NSF International. An independent organization, NSF International certifies products and creates standards for dietary supplements, food, water and consumer goods in an effort to minimize health risks and protect the public and the environment. GMPs for the current NSF International Dietary Supplements Registration Program are included in NSF International American National Standard 173, the only American National Standard for Dietary Supplements.
In addition, BSN® has completed the GMP for Sport™ registration, which includes semi-annual audits, verifying through quality and traceability review that no listed banned substances were present in the facility. This important designation serves to bolster consumer confidence in the companies that earn it and help consumers make educated decisions about the supplements they take.
“We’re pleased to announce BSN’s registration with NSF International through compliance with its GMP requirements,” James Tracy, Director of Marketing at BSN, states. “The quality and safety of BSN’s products has always been the highest priority for the company. As a leader in public health and safety standards, NSF’s registration provides additional credibility to the quality of BSN’s distribution practices.”
Good Manufacturing Practices are standards outlined by the Food and Drug Administration that address all aspects of dietary supplement production, from raw ingredient sourcing to final product release, as well as employee training and facility and equipment maintenance. Ongoing audits are performed in order to ensure continued compliance with the regulations. Companies who earn this designation have displayed a clear and consistent emphasis on quality throughout the manufacturing process.
