PGP International receives GMP for Sport Registration from NSF International
The registration helps minimize the risk that sports nutrition products are manufactured with athletic banned substances, such as steroids, stimulants, narcotics, beta blockers and masking agents.
PGP International, an ABF Ingredients Company, has been awarded good manufacturing practices (GMP) for Sport registration from NSF International, a global public health and safety organization that writes standards and tests and certifies products for the food, water and nutritional supplement industries.
A key component of NSF International’s Dietary Supplement Certification Program is GMP for Sport registration, which helps minimize the risk that sports nutrition products are manufactured with athletic banned substances, such as steroids, stimulants, narcotics, beta blockers and masking agents.
The program enables manufacturers working within the sports supplement industry to emphasize quality and increased brand credibility.
GMPs are regulations outlined by the US FDA, which require that the processes by which dietary supplement ingredients are produced are safer and free of possible contamination.
This includes all aspects of the manufacturing process, from raw material control to finished product release, as well as employee training, validation of testing equipment, product traceability and facility maintenance.
GMPs for the current NSF International Dietary Supplements Certification Program are included in NSF International American National Standard 173, the only American National Standard for Dietary Supplements.
GMP for Sport registration verifies PGP International’s Springfield facility and operations, as well as that ingredient sourcing complies with GMP requirements via ongoing audits.
