So along with having commonplace checklists to better ensure overall compliance, the practice of seeking out or obtaining "Certifications" for just about everything including GMP compliance. These certifications can be expensive. In surveying our client-base we've learned that companies can spend upwards of $30K-$50K per year or more to obtain or maintain certain certifications alone, but is it worth it? Our universal initial answer to that, well "it depends." As an example, the marketplace for dietary supplements is becoming an expanding realm of certifications, ranging from from GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) through to organic, vegan, GMO-free (i.e. no genetically modified organism sources), sustainably sourced and much more. To read more on the reality of certifications, as they specifically relate to the Sport Nutrition market, check out our recent NPI article: Certifiable: Sorting Through the Certification Marketplace.
For the March "GET REAL Compliance" webinar we are very pleased to announce that Alkemists Labs (joined by Elan Sudberg) will be our Guest Host Wednesday, March 15th, 2017 (10am PST). The topic they have selected is: "Testing into Compliance and Dry Labbing Awareness." These live video-driven webinars are FREE for our guests, BUT they are not recorded, so you have to be present to share the experience!
We look forward to hearing from you and your participation. If you have questions or would like to give your comments/feedback on the article, we welcome hearing from you.
