Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) are a set of guidelines that provide a system of processes, procedures and documentation to assure a product has the identity, strength, composition, quality and purity that appear on its label.GMP covers all aspects of production, from the initial materials, premises and equipment to training, personal hygiene and environment. Detailed, written procedures are essential for each process that could affect the quality of the finished product. There are systems in place to provide documented proof that all correct procedures are consistently followed within each step of the manufacturing process every single time a product is made.GMP refers to the Good Manufacturing Practice Regulations promulgated by the US Food and Drug Administration under the authority of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. These regulations, which have the force of law, require that manufacturers, processors, and packagers of drugs, medical devices, some food, and blood take proactive steps to ensure that their products are safe, pure, and effective. GMP regulations require a quality approach to manufacturing, enabling companies to minimize or eliminate instances of contamination, mix-ups, and errors. This in turn, protects the consumer from purchasing a product which is not effective or even dangerous.
