  Good Agricultural and Collection Practices

January 31, 2008

The new GMPs regulations for dietary supplements require manufacturers to establish quality specifications for identity, purity, strength, and composition, and limits on contaminants. For herbal products, that quality begins in the soil and is the first link in the GMP chain. All raw materials — whether grown on a farm or gathered in the wild — must be grown and handled properly after harvest or collection in order to meet those GMP quality standards. This two-hour tele-seminar provides information on getting the best quality raw materials from the field or forest, and how the grower and wildcrafter can meet buyers’ standards.

To help herbal ingredient growers, collectors, brokers and manufacturers understand each others’ needs and comply with federal and state regulations, AHPA General Counsel Anthony Young(Kleinfeld, Kaplan & Becker); Edward J. Fletcher, COO, Strategic Sourcing; Mark Wheeler, founder, owner & operator, Pacific Botanicals; and Rupa Das, VP of Global Quality and Compliance, BI Nutraceuticals, presented this highly informative two-hour educational tele-seminar, which covers such issues as:

  • Identification
  • Quality Assurance
  • Cleanliness
  • Environmental stewardship
  • Legal conformity
  • Optimal harvest conditions

Course materials include:

  • Audio file of the AHPA event
  • An unedited transcript of the AHPA event
  • Agenda
  • Presenters Bios
