Quality Control

Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) is a system for ensuring that products are consistently produced and controlled according to quality standards.

It is designed to minimize the risks involved in any pharmaceutical production that cannot be eliminated through testing the final product. GMP covers all aspects of production from the starting materials, premises, and equipment to the training and personal hygiene of staff. Detailed written procedures are essential for each process that could affect the quality of the finished product. There must be systems to provide documented proof that correct procedures are consistently followed at each step in the manufacturing process – every time a product is made.

EU GMP certification is an enhancement to the GMP certification as required for the European Union countries. Instadose Pharma, as a conscientious and reputable corporation, offers full EU-GMP certified products that are cultivated, processed and distributed in accordance with these high-level standards.
