GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) certification is given to manufacturing organizations to certify that the organizations engage in good manufacturing practices throughout their manufacturing process and in accordance to the Standard Code of Practice that relates to their business. It is important for all manufacturing companies to be GMP-certified. This certification is beneficial to the manufacturer and to the customers or consumers who use the products from the manufacturing firm. GMP is part of a quality system that covers the manufacturing, testing and sampling of active ingredients in pharmaceutical products, foods and food supplements, medical devices and diagnostics. The following are reasons why it is important to go for products that are manufactured by companies that are GMP-certified:
Ensures Food Safety GMP certification aims at ensuring that all products manufactured are safe for human consumption. This strengthens the safety management systems put in place by manufacturers. It ensures that all manufacturing firms observe a strict guideline in guaranteeing the safety of the final consumer or user who uses their products. Once a consumer realizes that a company is GMP-certified, he or she will buy the company’s product knowing it has no harmful substances.
Increases Consumer Confidence – There are several disadvantages associated with private labeling. Some people feel that companies that private label their products do not follow the right procedures in protecting the consumer or they basically evade some important legislation during the manufacturing and labeling of their products. However, if a company has a GMP certification, consumer confidence is enhanced and consumer will buy more of the company’s products.
Reduces Safety Risk in Product Quality and Product Safety – If you buy a product from a GMP-certified company, you will have nothing to worry about the quality of the products or the safety of the products. This is because product safety and quality is observed and maintained throughout the manufacturing and production process of these products. Unlike products from uncertified companies, you will comfortably use these products knowing they are safe for human consumption.
Enhances International Credibility and Public Image – People like associating themselves with products from credible and trustworthy companies. Therefore, it is easy for an individual to buy a supplement or a product from a not so popular company that is GMP-certified than from a very popular company that is not GMP-certified. This is a wake up call to all manufacturers who do not have the GMP certification to ensure that they have one. It also acts as a reminder to all consumers to ensure that they buy their products from manufacturers who are certified.
Helps Reduce Operating Costs – To manufacturers, good manufacturing practice certification enhances safety management systems at different manufacturing levels thereby enabling your employees to detect production and management problems at the right time. This in the long run will help in reducing costs associated with the production and manufacturing processes.
In summary, the GMP-certification is important to both the consumers and manufacturers of pharmaceutical products, food and food supplements, cosmetics, diagnostic products and medical equipment. It is a good idea to always go for products that are manufactured by companies that are GMP-certified.
