NaturPro Scientific is a lab testing advocate for our clients as one of the few “UnLabs” not limited to a particular set of instruments or limitations of a single lab. Working with multiple labs allows us to advocate and work on behalf of our clients, to ensure that correct methods and results are obtained.

Dietary Supplement Supplier Verification

by NaturPro in Comments: 0

Suppliers, manufacturers, marketers and distributors of supplements are better able to manage risk and ensure compliance of supply chain with regulations.

Dietary Supplement Supplier Verification

Our Supplier Verification Process: NaturPro offers flexible plans for supply verification according to GMP. The approach depends on our clients’ individual regulatory requirements, findings from an initial gap analysis included with every audit, and current level of documentation.

NaturPro offers a range of GMP supplier audit services, to comply with FDA requirements for ingredient suppliers, manufacturers, packagers and distributors of dietary supplements. The process of audits for a GAP assessment, vendor qualification, consultation or due diligence is as simple as submitting the appropriate paperwork and scheduling the audit.

  1. Expertise: Experienced auditors with 10+ years experience in international supply chain
  2. Type: Flexible options customized to your needs, including gap analysis, training, self-evaluations, internal audits, multiple standards audits, and mock audits
  3. Format: Desk (documentation) audit, video audits, in-person audits, and combination audits
  4. Project or Subscription Basis: On as-needed contract basis, or ongoing basis to maintain certification.
  5. Facility: Distributor, Manufacturer, Marketer for a range of product types and dosage forms
  6. Reporting: Included are A) GMP Certification or Letter of Opinion benchmarked to a particular approved standard and B) Comprehensive audit and corrective actions reports.

Complying with GMP’s  involves more than keeping your facility in compliance. It’s also essential to verify your supply chain is compliant with the regulation. We can perform supply chain GMP audits as needed at your request or on an ongoing basis to maintain certification.

Supplement and Ingredient Quality Assurance

by NaturPro in Comments: 0

Providing Quality Assurance for Natural Products

A number of recent FDA guidances and regulatory actions have clarified requirements to operate a business in dietary supplements, healthy foods and ingredients.

Meanwhile, we find ourselves in an unprecedented climate of consumers demanding quality, purity and transparency, while regulators, class action attorneys and advocacy groups are testing food and supplement products they buy off the shelves with intent.

It has never been more clear that well documented, scientific evidence verifying the quality and safety of ingredients used for dietary supplements and foods is the top priority for any consumer products business.

Identifying your gaps and knowing how to fix them is an investment with high returns on investment. Contact us today for a free pre-assessment.
