Good manufacturing practice (GMP) in the food and dietary/nutritional supplements industry is designed to ensure that food products and dietary/nutritional supplements are manufactured in accordance with quality system principles. Proper implementation of GMP will minimize risks involved in the production process and allow the manufacturer to identify, neutralize and prevent them prior to final product testing. GMP covers all aspects of production, supplier certification, raw material acceptance, production facilities and production operations, employee training, cleaning procedures and validation.
In the Israeli food industry, procedures are audited and enforced by the Ministry of Health monitoring unit.
In the US, GMP is enforced under 21 CFR part 101, and in Europe as part of Directive 2002/46/EC.
