With CORE’s platform, training and consultants we were able to succeed in a short time and gain a level of understanding and structure we otherwise would never have been able to accomplish.

C&C International was indeed very pleased with the Core training we’ve recently received. Suzanne Weber-Smartko and Norman Verbeck provided very good support and direction. We are very much satisfied with CORE.

What is GMP / cGMP?
Good Manufacturing Practices is a system (much like a management system) that consists of processes, procedures, and documentation that ensures manufacturing food, cosmetics, cannabis products, and pharmaceutical goods are produced according to specific quality standards. GMPs can be implemented with ISO 9001 or separately.
The benefits of properly implementing GMPs can be:
- Reduced waste
- Safer food/consumable
- Little to no supply chain disruption
In the United States, the FDA (Federal Drug Administration) is responsible for setting the requirements for Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and Current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP). According to the FDA they “specify the minimum requirements for the methods, facilities, and controls used in manufacturing, processing, and packing of a drug product. The regulations make sure that a product is safe for use, and that it has the ingredients and strength it claims to have.”
cGMPs apply to manufacturers that must follow “Current” Good Manufacturing Practices, meaning their machines, technologies, and processes must conform to current requirements. The section below talks about those specific products that fall into the cGMP area.
