April 13, 2007 - Missoula, Montana – Nutritional Laboratories International (NLI), a leading custom manufacturer of premium quality dietary supplements, is pleased to announce Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) Registration through NSF International’s Dietary Supplement Certification program. NLI successfully met all requirements included in NSF’s GMP Registration Program.
NSF conducted a plant audit to verify compliance with GMPs and will conduct periodic audits at the Missoula facility to ensure continued conformance. GMPs for the current NSF Dietary Supplements Program are included in NSF American National Standard 173-Dietary Supplements, the only American National Standard for Dietary Supplement. GMPs are regulatory requirements that provide guidelines for necessary processes, procedures and documentation to assure the product produced has the identity, strength, composition, quality and purity it is represented to possess.
Nutritional Laboratories International’s GMP registration reflects their continued commitment to ensuring quality and satisfaction and gives companies confidence that their organization operates in conformance to established GMPs. For meeting GMP requirements, NLI receives a NSF GMP registration certificate and is listed on the NSF Web site.
“By obtaining GMP Registration, Nutritional Laboratories confirms their commitment to quality and provides them with a clear advantage in the industry, while highlighting the fact that they are well prepared to comply with any additional FDA regulations,” said Kristen Holt Sr. VP Food Safety & Dietary Supplements.
