GMP certification means that the site and methods employed in production have been subject to a thorough quality control investigation by a government agency or qualified third party organization and are certified to be in compliance. The GMP certification process covers all aspects of manufacturing, including inspection of the building and grounds, the air and water purification systems, the handling and processing of raw materials, the product manufacturing process, the operation and cleaning of equipment, the training of personnel, and quality control testing and documentation. Adherence to the GMP guidelines ensures that every batch of product is safe and of the highest quality.
