Demonstrate Your Commitment to Public Safety in Accordance with the FDA

GMP compliance increases marketplace credibility by assuring a product has the strength, composition, quality and purity that appear on its label. The recent increase in FDA inspections and enforcement emphasize the importance of knowing GMPs inside and out.

Become trained by NSF at Ingredient Marketplace where manufacturers of dietary supplements, ingredients, and raw materials, as well as packaging companies, distributors, and warehouses are invited to attend these educational programs.

21 CFR 111 Dietary Supplement GMP Overview

This extensive two-day training course covers 21 CFR 111, the current good manufacturing practices (cGMPs) in manufacturing, packaging, labeling or holding operations for dietary supplements. This course is geared to individuals involved in the dietary supplement industry including those from the following areas: manufacturing, management quality control/assurance, laboratory operations, labeling, auditing, suppliers and distributors, and regulatory affairs. These guidelines are intended to apply to dietary supplements as defined and covered by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's Code of Federal Regulations Title 21, Part 111 (Current Good Manufacturing Practices in Manufacturing, Packaging, Labeling, or Holding Operations for Dietary Supplements) also known as 21 CFR Part 111.

Vendor Qualification and Audit Training

Supplier or vendor qualification is a crucial component in compliance to 21 CFR 111. FDA requires that manufacturers of dietary supplements must "qualify" each of their vendors but does not provide guidance on how a company is to perform this qualification. Supplier qualification principles also apply to subcontracted services affecting cGMP (manufacturing steps, packaging and labeling, testing and/or calibration services, storage and distribution, etc.). Any supplier qualification program must include two critical components: (1) Clearly defined specifications/requirements for all of these goods or services being purchased; and (2) Objective evidence to show your requirements are being consistently fulfilled. This course will offer guidance on how to achieve both of these critical requirements in ways that will enable compliance with cGMPs and make the most efficient use of your resources. Since the evaluation of suppliers of all types often involves auditing, this course will also incorporate a fresh look at the process of auditing and the skills and techniques necessary to get the most from these activities. These auditing skills and techniques are independent of the type of auditing or the standard being audited, so they will be useful to conducting internal audits as well as performing audits of suppliers.

Corrective Action Management (CAPA)

Every system has things that do not go according to plan and results that do not meet expectations. A cGMP system will have many sources of such issues: customer complaints, product non compliances, internal deviations from specified practices, supplier problems and results from internal, second-party or third-party audits. This course will focus on factors and techniques to enable you to turn these initially negative events into positive outcomes that will not only avoid recurrences of these problems, but strengthen your overall quality system.
