GMP Certification

NPA and UL are also partnering to certify dietary supplement makers are following federal guidelines and regulations – Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) – that are an essential part of the government’s oversight of the industry. Read the announcement.

The organizations have developed a co-branded, dietary supplement-specific badge logo program for use in product labeling, such as marketing materials, websites and social media for dietary supplements. The use of both the NPA and UL marks in its co-branded partnership will only be available for companies certified under the NPA GMP standard with audits conducted by UL. More information will be available as the partnership unfolds.
