Companies that manufacture, package, label, or import dietary supplements or health products for sale in Canada and the U.S. must ensure that their staff is trained in Good Manufacturing Practices; it is a regulatory requirement. But legal ramifications aside, proper training makes good business sense. Employees who are properly trained make fewer errors and are better equipped to handle errors/incidents when they do occur.
GMP training can be very expensive, as it often requires travel to an offsite location or having a trainer appear onsite. To address this, dicentra has produced GMP Online Training. This is an online portal that provides companies with a one-year membership to unlimited and easily accessible GMP training. The comprehensive program includes training videos, training documents, a forum to discuss GMP issues, quizzes to check up on GMP knowledge and certificates of course completion to help supplement your Site License Applications or FDA inspections with proof of training.
