IDDI™ Verifications address key parts of Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP)
IDDI Verifications Improve GMP Compliance
GMP's are required for dietary supplements and other natural products consumed by people. GMP audits typically include more than 200 different checks, and include a brief review of identity, specifications and supplier qualification, IDDI™ Verification goes far beyond the typical GMP audit, and includes a review of test methods and results to evaluate scientific validity -- the FDA requirement.
The recent actions by the NY Attorney General
has added to the mass confusion on how to properly identify ingredients and qualify products and suppliers under dietary supplement GMP.
Even before the recent media, natural products scientists, industry stakeholders, and standards-setting organizations have spoken at length about the need for straightforward, universal standards for identity testing.
Although there is no 'one-size-fits-all' test method or litmus test for identity, specifications and supplier qualification, IDDI™ Verifications seek to clarify the confusion by charting universal standards and provide a clear path for clients to improve the compliance and confidence in the integrity of their ingredients.
