Good Manufacturing Practices For Producing Safe, High Quality Items
Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) are designed to provide manufacturers of regulated products with a system for consistently producing safe, high-quality items. Subsequently, manufacturers are required to ensure their suppliers (raw material providers, testing laboratories, etc.) are following GMP standards as well.
Q Laboratories’ GMP Laboratory services support manufacturers in their mission to comply with GMP specifications, not just because it is required, but because it is the right thing to do. We take very seriously our role in protecting consumers from potentially dangerous products. All staff members are trained in GMP procedures during onboarding and must attend frequent GMP training sessions administered by the Q Laboratories’ Quality Assurance Unit (QAU), for the duration of their employment at the company.
Q Laboratories’ Quality Assurance Unit (QAU)
The QAU conducts on-going GMP audits of the laboratories to discover any gaps or areas of concern that may exist in the Standard Operating Procedures (SOP). While these audits are performed to meet FDA Establishment Inspection guidelines and maintain FDA Registration, the quest for excellence exists outside compulsory regulatory limits; dedication to serving both manufacturers and consumers inspires a commitment to continual improvement and operational excellence.
Product types analyzed Q Laboratories’ GMP Laboratory include pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, health and beauty care items, raw materials, and water used in production and cleaning. The lab also assists manufacturer partners with verifying that production environments are clean and free from adulterants by designing and administering Environmental Monitoring Programs.
Q Laboratories also provides extensive Stability Testing services to establish the duration during which products remain safe and effective.
Strict adherence to GMP requirements throughout the product lifecycle is the best way to protect consumers from adulterated or mislabeled products.
