Our Warehouse is FDA-Registered
What Does FDA-Registered Mean?
When providing fulfillment services, there are times we work with customers whose food, drug or cosmetic products require special FDA-mandated care, tracking and monitoring. Some of these products require what is known as FDA Registration. Products that fall under this designation could include: candy, cookies, chocolates, pet treats and more.
We Are Also cGMP Compliant
In addition to being FDA registered, Global Response 3PL is also cGMP compliant. cGMP refers to the Current Good Manufacturing Practice regulations enforced by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
What’s a cGMP? Companies that are known as cGMPs and that are cGMP compliant demonstrate an ability to provide systems and processes that ensure the proper design, monitoring, and control of manufacturing processes and facilities needed to fulfill products in industries such as medical, food, drug (including supplements), cosmetics and natural products. At Global Response 3PL, we are fully committed to the safe and proper storage and shipping of cGMP-related products such as dietary supplements, vitamins, natural healthcare products and other health and beauty products.
How does cGMP compliance work? According to the “Inspections follow a standard approach and are conducted by highly trained FDA staff….Most companies that are inspected are found to be fully compliant with the CGMP regulations.” As a 3PL that fulfills products in the supplement space, we are particularly focused on compliance with cGMP Part 211, the Current Good Manufacturing for Finished Pharmaceuticals.
We’re fully cGMP complaint. As a leading supplement fulfillment distribution center serving clients throughout the U.S., we fully respect, understand and follow the guidelines related to being both a FDA Registered company and a cGMP compliant company.
