NHP GMP compliance is a requirement of any company that manufactures, packages, labels, and/or imports natural health products. Natural health products good manufacturing practices (GMPs), as per Part 3 of the Natural Health Products Regulations, are a system of processes, procedures and documentation to set the appropriate standards and practices for manufacturing, packaging, labeling, importing and storage activities. Distributors are also included in the natural health products GMPs and also responsible for meeting their own applicable GMP requirements which include having an appointed Quality Assurance Person.
GMP regulations state that companies must have a designated individual responsible for Quality Assurance (i.e. a QAP) that is qualified through a combination of education, training and experience – dicentra can fulfill this vital role on your behalf.

GMP compliance is also an excellent approach to quality and risk management. dicentra’s qualified staff can serve as either your formal QA personnel, or simply as your informal advisor on all matters related to QA.
Training in GMPs for manufacturers, packagers, labelers, and importers is mandatory in Canada. dicentra has a long history of providing effective regulatory and GMP training and strives to make the training experience a meaningful and enjoyable one.
