AHPA partnered with the Global Retailer and Manufacturer Alliance (GRMA) to present this free webinar on February 26, 2019 to provide the herbal industry with specific details on the benefits and implementation costs of the new GRMA ANSI-accredited auditing standards.
GRMA's recently-developed audit integrity program is aimed at eliminating “audit fatigue,” redundancy and associated costs in the areas of cosmetics/personal care, dietary supplements and over-the-counter drugs.
GRMA was formed to develop an auditing scheme that utilized consensus-based quality system standards for Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP’s) through the American National Standards process in several industries.
The standards were finalized in December of 2018 with NSF International, an ANSI accredited standards development organization (SDO). GRMA is using the ANSI standards development process to develop unique GMP audits that include audit processes and requirements for certification bodies, and a robust audit integrity program. GRMA is also in the development process with additional standards to address other aspects of the supply chain.
GRMA is a global nonprofit with members from most major retailers, manufacturers, trade associations and certification bodies.
