What is CGMP Certification?
Why is this certification important?
Because dietary supplements are ingested and pose similar risk to foods, dietary supplements historically were considered a type of food and thus had the same requirements as foods. GMPs for the food and dietary supplement industry were originally codified in 1986 under 21 CFR 110: Current Good Manufacturing Practice in Manufacturing, Packing, or Holding Human Food.
Why the little “c”? When FDA published the first set of GMPs specific for dietary supplements in 2007 under 21 CFR 111, they were titled: Current Good Manufacturing Practice in Manufacturing, Packaging, Labeling, Or Holding Operations For Dietary Supplements. Today, GMP and cGMP can be used interchangeably as each refers to the proper design, monitoring, and control of manufacturing processes and facilities.
