cGMP stands for Current Good Manufacturing Practices. This standard dictates that certain manufacturers, pharmaceutical packagers, makers of medical devices, and certain food utilize equipment and technologies that are up-to-date with the most current GMP standards. These standards require that the manufacture or packaging of goods adhere to a set of standards that minimizes the risk of contamination, and error to ensure the consumer is receiving the highest quality products.
Pharmaceutical products are subject to Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMP). FDA inspectors make sure that a company has the appropriate facilities, equipment, standards, and training to reliably produce high-quality pharmaceuticals.
GMP standards give a technically solid approach to consistent and high-quality manufacturing processes for any product seeking market certification.
