“Good manufacturing practices (GMPs) are guidelines that provide a system of processes, procedures and documentation to assure a product has the identity, strength, composition, quality and purity that appear on its label.”

LANDING, NEW JERSEY, June 3, 2015, Orcas Naturals was pleased to report that Unique Encapsulation, a division, was granted NSF/GMP Certification. This is a significant milestone in an industry that produces health supplements. Regulatory guidelines are the only measure to gauge if a supplement company is meeting public health safety standards. The NSF/GMP mark represents the highest standards of evaluation and safety-testing of dietary supplements and herbal formulations. The GMP requirements are listed in Section 8 of NSF/ANSI 173 which is the only accredited American National Standard in the dietary supplement industry developed in accordance with the FDA’s 21 CFR part 111.

Orcas Naturals recently acquired Unique Encapsulation (UET), considered a “Best-In-Class” custom encapsulation manufacturer of all kinds of nutritional supplements. One of the results of the acquisition was a new production facility including state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment and warehouse space. This expansion enabled Orcas Naturals the ability to offer unequaled cost-effective solutions, and expanded formulation capabilities. Clients of Unique Encapsulation were always aware of their strictly-enforced sourcing and manufacturing standards. The NSF/GMP Certification is valued by consumers, manufacturers, retailers and regulatory agencies around the globe. It is one of the most respected independent certification organizations in existence today.

When the NSF/GMP mark is shown on a product, it imparts knowledge that an impartial review against established criteria or guidelines has been conducted, and evidence that product labeling and claims have been objectively reviewed by a trusted third party. NSF International has a professional staff of engineers, microbiologists, toxicologists, chemists, public health experts and certification specialists in locations worldwide. NSF International is accredited by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (osha.gov), the Standards Council of Canada (SCC) (scc.ca), the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) (ansi.org) and the International Accreditation Service (iasonline.org). NSF laboratories worldwide are ISO/IEC 17025 accredited for testing and calibration and the Ann Arbor location is an OSHA Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory.
