Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) and Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) go hand in hand to maintain high safety and quality standards. GMP ensures the safety of the end user by controlling the manufacturing of the product, whereas GLP ensures the quality of the product by ensuring all activities are performed in a consistent manner. Both GMP and GLP are regulated by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and affect our production of antibacterial hand soaps and hand sanitizers.
Good Labortatory Practice is a quality system of management controls that exists to guarantee the consistency, reliability, and quality of chemical tests. Following GLP ensures that when we test our products for efficacy and quality, the results are reliable and can be reproduced. This allows us to consistently check our products for any type of contamination and protect the end user from harm.
Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) guidelines exist to protect the end user of a product from harm. These guidelines provide direction for manufacturing, testing, and quality assurance to ensure that a final product is safe for human use or consumption. In the United States, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires companies to follow GMP when manufacturing certain products. In our case, it affects our manufacturing of antibacterial hand soap and hand sanitizer.
