The dietary supplement manufacturer meets NSF’s stringent certification requirements for 150 banned substances by professional athletic associations.
Anaheim, CA— December 29, 2011 — GMP Laboratories of America, Inc. is now registered as NSF Certified for Sport®. The program is specially designed by NSF International as a focused solution designed to minimize the risk that a dietary supplement or sports nutrition product contains banned substances. The program is officially recognized by the NFL, NFLPA, MLB, MLBPA, PGA, LPGA, NCAA, and CCES.
In order to obtain the registration, GMP Laboratories had to meet the NSF’s stringent certification requirements. These guidelines were developed through a consensus process which involved regulators, sports industry leaders, and consumer groups. Some of the requirements include product testing for over 150 banned substances, label content confirmation, formulation and label review, production facility and supplier inspections, as well as ongoing monitoring in line with substance prohibitive lists: NSF Annex A, NFL, MLB, and NCAA.
Customers of products that are made at an NSF Certified for Sport® facility can be sure that the products were manufactured with the following preventative measures in mind, to:
- Protect against adulteration of products,
- Verify label claims against product contents, and
- Identify athletic banned substances in the finished product or ingredients.
Suhail Ishaq, president of GMP Laboratories of America, commented on this achievement, “We are proud to expand our growing list of cGMP certificates with the prestigious NSF Certified for Sport® registration. Additionally, our customers now have even more confidence that the sport supplements manufactured at our site are held to the highest standards.” GMP Labs’ other certificates include cGMP compliance from both NSF International and Silliker Labs.
