Novel Ingredient Services has been registered to the NSF International Dietary Supplement Ingredient Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) program. Novel is the first United States dietary ingredient supplier to receive the supplier-specific facility registration. NSF developed the specialized dietary ingredient GP program in 2013 as an extension of a broader NSF GMP registration program for finished goods manufacturers.
Earning the GMP registrations verifies that Novel's manufacturing facility has all the GMP-compliant methods, equipment and controls in place necessary in today's regulatory environment.
"End-products can only be as good as the ingredients that go into them," said Bob Green, Novel chairman. "Using raw materials from Novel’s NSF GMP-registered facility will give manufacturers true peace of mind that they are meeting or exceeding regulatory requirements."
Novel underwent an onsite audits that scrutinized the company's personnel, physical plant and grounds, equipment, production and process control systems, holding and distribution, records and recordkeeping to obtain NSF Dietary Ingredient GMP Facility Registration. To maintain the NSF GMP registration, Novel will undergo the audit process twice a year.
